    That said, I never checked the provided bank details were correct. I do it all by DD now, saves trying to remember details.

    Of course they are very helpful in providing details of HMRC bank details, but I then check online to see if monies have gone through.

    Search for your company here - http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk - then click the link "Monitor this company".

    Create a bookmark - http:// data.companieshouse.gov.uk/doc/company/NNNNNNNN (where NNNNNNNN is the co. number)

    Login to the HMRC gateway, there you can check VAT, PAYE, CT and monies owed, even if your accountant is managing this for you.

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

    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

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

    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.

    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.
