    Submitting amended accounts to HMRC myself rather than Accountant

    Companies House accounts may potentially need to be amended too.
    Unlikely, as both will probably appear as “Other Taxation” in current liabilities.

    Got to say, if a client asked me to make this change after another accountant made the mistake I’d be inclined to say “it’s not material, forget it. We’ll change it next year” and leave it at that. In fact, I’ve probably spent more time on this thread than I’d spend on the matter in reality if I was the accountant.


      I wonder what accountants think of contractors

      The Revenue get you to make a return so they can verify you've paid the right tax. They're supremely disinterested in the minutiae of your business unless it affects tax.

      It saddens me that several people on here can't see that you should do things in life for a purpose not just because they are there to be done.

      If the tax was right, just forget about it. And go back to carefully lining up all your socks in your wardrobe.
