Kristina, an IT consultant, came to us last month looking for urgent help to complete a Self Assessment Tax return, having missed the 31 January 2019 deadline for submission to HMRC. Kristina had found us online after searching for accountants in London open on Saturdays.
Kristina had initially enlisted the help of an online accountant through a job platform, who she had worked with previously to complete the accounts for her IT consultancy business. The online accountant, however, did not deliver in time and Kristina was facing fines from HMRC for late submission as well as now requiring urgent support to complete the Self Assessment Tax return without further delay.
We were happy to help Kristina with the return and we worked with her closely through the weekend to help avoid further fines from HMRC and more unnecessary worry or stress.
Understanding the importance of ensuring consistent data flow to HMRC and needing access to the recently completed accounts from the online accountant to complete the return properly, we soon came to realise that the service offered to Kristina from the online accountant was far below expectations and did not include the correct information, including very important numbers on turnover. Misreporting and not analysing and reporting on the full picture of your business activities is not only perceived as dishonest by HMRC but also does not allow Kristina to experience the true tax liability, relief and savings available to her.
We were able to support Kristina and help submit the correct data to HMRC efficiently and with due care, and were able to save Kristina thousands of pounds as a result.
