When I paid the corporation tax I asked the accountant if I could deduct what they owe me from what I owe them and I was told that I couldnt. I was also told that a client of theirs did that and HMRC got the bailiffs on him
The long and short is that another financial year has now passed and HMRC still owe me money.
My accountants say that they have been chasing but dont want to rock the boat. HMRC keep promising that they are "looking at it" and dont worry when we do get it there will be "interest on it".
I am really not sure if this delay is due to HMRC or my accountants being flakey. Should I go round my accountants and start chasing HMRC directly ?
Question is, how do I get my money back without kicking up with HMRC and getting myself a tax inspection ? I have nothing to worry about having an inspection, I just dont want the grief of it and no one in their right mind wants to be on HMRCs radar if they can avoid it.
