    Accountant recommendations for EU/UK self assessment

    My accountant (Nixon Williams) have just told me they are unable to help with my tax return as it involved working on a Dutch payroll for 4-5 months of the 16/17 tax year.

    With the deadline fast approaching, can anyone recommend a decent accountant that wont skin me alive, who knows how to handle a SA with this complexity (hopefully not much - i have all the payslips and whatnot).

    Cheers.

    Not great form for a company with a tax centre of excellence.

    They managed to mess mine up and it was a simple return so maybe you’ve had a lucky escape

    Can’t help you on the foreign tax return though. Could be struggling this close to the deadline I’d imagine!

      Was it simply a Dutch employment? I can’t see why they are incapable of supporting this. It’s literally a ten minute job. Unless I’m missing something.

        Can’t understand why NW can’t do this for you, they recently launched their “tax centre of excellence” and surely as part of a huge group there is someone who can handle this?

          Me neither.

          Given I have all the pay slips, showing all the gross and net figures with all the deductions in english, you'd think it would be a case of adding/removing up some numbers and sticking them on a form.

          They even wanted 270 quid off me to process the form if I was a non-dom, which meant they could disregard anything complex.

          Bit of a poor show to be honest.

            Yep, a perfectly all above board Dutch Payroll. Dutch Social Security number, registration at city hall, the whole nine yards. Can't see what is so hard.

              It’s not hard. They are being difficult or your account manager isn’t very good.

                That's the problem sometimes with contractor only accountants...

                  Credit where credit is due, Dynamo have stepped in and I'm already in the process of being helped out by Darren.
