When a business or private individual appoints an accountant, they trust that they will make sure invoices and taxes are paid on time, profitability is evaluated and growth is managed.
However, sometimes the service provided by your accountant might fall below the professional standard you should receive, which could result in you or your business suffering a financial loss.
As one of the UK’s largest professional negligence departments, we’re here to help recover any losses that you might have incurred by assisting you with an accountant negligence claim. We could be able to help you claim compensation if your accountant has:
- Provided incorrect tax advice
Failed to detect fraud
Conducted audits incorrectly
Inaccurately valued company assets
Failed to prepare accounting documents
Missed an important deadline (e.g. annual tax return)
Accountant negligence claims are usually subject to a six year time limit, from the date when the negligence took place, so it’s important to contact our lawyers as soon as possible.
After you’ve contacted us we’ll discuss how to progress with your case and the funding options available. Our team offers a variety of funding options for accountant negligence cases including fixed fees, and private retainers. We also offer Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) and After The Event (ATE) insurance.
