CLAIMS AGAINST ACCOUNTANTS AND TAX ADVISORS
At Birch Law our expert team have extensive experience dealing with claims against accountants and tax advisors for negligent financial advice. Both individuals and businesses will need to instruct an accountant and/or tax advisor at some stage, for instance: to assist with the preparation of annual accounts; undertake an audit function; to advise on tax arrangements; or providing advice on other financial implications during the purchase of a business.
Accountants, like other professionals, owe a duty of care to their clients to perform their work with reasonable care and skill. If they fail to do this and you suffer a loss as a result, then you may have a valid claim against them for professional negligence. This includes claims against accountants for providing negligent valuation advice; and tax advisors for providing incorrect advice in respect of tax arrangements and schemes resulting in criticism and claims made against them from HMRC.
