Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Try reporting his antics to his professional body if they have one. That would be my first port of call. I would also suggest that you have nothing to do with his umbrella company.
Well one would hope that he were a Chartered Accountant, a Chartered Certified Accountant, a Chartered Management Accountant or a CIPFA member. He might be an accounting technician, an AAT. Unfortunately there is not statutory definition of an accountant, anyone can set up as one. Call yourself a solicitor when you are not and you commit a criminal offence.
Master of Business Administration, Bachelor of Business Studies, a South African Business school, Chartered Institute of Marketing. The holder would appear to be that curse of the accounting profession, an unqualified accountant who may practice with impunity and about whom little can be done. I knew someone with a MBA as his sole qualification who got a job with Smith Klein Beecham only they rumbled him and when he arrived he was refused admission and told that his appointment had been cancelled. Couldn't have happened to a more obnoxious individual.
I fear that you are on a hiding to nothing reporting his antics.
You could try complaining to your local trading standards about him or his company. By using a corporate body it is difficult to transfer liability to an individual. Your best way when looking for an accountant is to ask around. Mark you at one time companies with which I was associated had a competent accountant until he went to prison being involved in dubious activity!
If you think your tax and national insurance has been wrongly computed you couls complain to HMRC and if moneys have gone astray the it is a matter for the police.
Just Answer protocol precludes me from making recommendations save in very general terms.
Thank you for your excellent support.
You can always ask HMRC for a new form explaining the position.
I think that the new house rental should be the subject of a new question. Ask forCustomerand i should pick it up.
