If something doesn’t add up – call us
If you feel that your accountant has provided poor advice, or has failed to provide the correct level of service, then you may have a claim.
We’ve listed the usual claims made, but if yours doesn’t fall within these, then get in touch and we’ll be able to quickly tell you if it’s worth you pursuing yours:
- Incorrect or negligent tax advice
- Failure to register for VAT
- Failure to take into account specific facts
- Failure to complete a tax return, which resulted in late penalty charges
- Failure to detect fraud or misappropriation of funds
- Negligent preparation of an audit report or overvaluation of company assets
Most accountants are regulated by one of two professional bodies*. So if you have a minor complaint about poor or inadequate service, then you can refer your complaint to them.
Both of these bodies have formal procedures designed to help if you feel you’ve have been badly advised. These procedures are designed to deal with most minor negligence issues.
However, if you feel that these procedures haven’t dealt with your complaint, or that the outcome wasn’t what you were looking for, then you should consider contacting us to establish if you have a case for suing your accountant for professional negligence.
You have nothing to lose by contacting us to establish if you have a case or not, as our initial consultation is free of charge.
*The Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) regulate Certified Accountants whilst the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) regulate Chartered Accountants.
