    Accountant name required for a screening

    I've been contracting through an LTD from a number of years and now I'm moving to a Fixed Term Contract directly with the employer.
    As a part of the screening process I've been asked to provide the name and contact details of my accountant. Does anyone know what they'll ask the accountant? How much detail do they want, i.e. filling figures, dividends, liabilities? or is it just something more basic and they just want to check that there is proper set up behind the LTD company I've used?

    When my accountant has provided a reference all he states is I've been xxx company accountant from date1 to date2.

    Anything else they want a quick companies house search will reveal the info.
