Accountants Negligence

Accountants offer a wide range of products and services from book-keeping and the preparation of accounts to advising, reporting and providing regulatory services.

It’s only right that you expect your accountant to provide you with a professional service. You could have a professional negligence claim if the service received was below a reasonable standard of skill and care and as a result you have suffered a financial loss.

If you think you have a claim against your accountant, please contact us at Verisona Law and we’d be happy to assist.

There are many circumstances where it may be appropriate to pursue a claim against your accountant. Some examples include:

  • Failing to provide correct tax advice resulting in you incurring HMRC fines or penalties
  • Failing to ensure accounts or tax returns were accurate and without errors
  • Failing to meet tax deadlines
  • Failing to submit VAT returns or provided wrong advice on VAT recoverability
  • Failing to detect fraud
  • Failing to provide competent advice on estate tax planning
  • Failing to value company shares/business accurately
  • Failing to conduct thorough due diligence

The examples above are not intended to be exhaustive, so if you think you have a professional negligence claim please contact us at Verisona Law and we’d be happy to assist.
