    I am having trouble getting hold of my accountant, the HMRC say he hasn't filed my companies accounts for three years and have given me a massive estimated tax bill and companies house are threatening to prosecute me if my accounts are not filed. Can anyone help? How do I get him to do the job asked or get my records from him so I can change accountant?
    Your new accountant can request all the relevant records in order to prepare the accounts. For future reference here is a useful link to CH website where you can sign up to filing reminders.

        How can you NOT know you've paid no corp. tax for three years?

        Go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect £200.

          Accountant tells you to send them a cheque and they will pay it as your agent to HMRC
          Accountant gives you their bank details as HMRC
          You pay HMRC and accountant files a return with Nil tax owed and claims the repayment

          Go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect £200.
          Is what happened to the accountant that did the above.

            There should never be any need to make a tax payment direct to accountant.

            Sometimes we request a HMRC cheque is sent to us, payable to "HMRC", so we can send it on with allocation instructions - useful if there is a reference problem at HMRC - but anyone who is asked to pay a tax amount via a payment made out to their accountant should be on their guard.

              I have an alert set up with Companies House to let me know when things are being filed - if I don't get one at the right kind of time, I then start to worry.
              How do you do this? My Husband has registered his company through his accountant's address - even for all letters from HMRC to go there!!! Also, we pay the accountant directly, not HMRC when it comes to year end 😟

                Really? (The last bit). I'd stop that immediately. Google Darren Upton if you want to know why.

                    HMRC and Companies House are different government agencies.

                    Also any time a business for example an accountant or a solicitor asks you to pay funds to them to be transferred to a third party you should confirm they have a client account* otherwise pay all money directly to that third party.

                    *Solicitors have to do so and so do accountants regulated by ICAEW

                      Unless it's a house purchase or suchlike. But I can think of no reason why an accountant would work this way.
