    Looks like its very easy to do
    John Smith is most definitely different to John Smith Ltd.

    Any agent doing their job properley SHOULD pick that up and I would suspect they have been negligent if they have missed it.

    I think he's trying to cover his own back there.

    Agreed.

    Regardless of whether you can tell the type of bank account you are paying into, all you need to do is put the company number into the Companies House Website then it will tell you the status of the company.

    Edited to say: I wonder if HMRC VAT will be interested in the agencies paying VAT to a non-VAT registered company and claiming it back?
