    Presuming that this is self assessment not a limited company, you will have to get the information from the previous accountant, has the return already been filed? If so get the client on your agent service quick!

    Without any more details I can't see how you will work it out

    If his year end is October, then Oct 09 accounts will be on the 09/10 return. The year ending Oct 10 will be on the 10/11 Return. However, I agree with Bluewednesday that you need to find out what years have been filed and whether they have been filed correctly. I would suggest a letter to the previous accountant and also to get him registered online so that you can check it yourself. Hope that helps.

    thankyou all for your help

    having delved further after initial panic have found some tax figures the last accountant has quoted for payment January 2011 for personal tax return
    and i have an unaudited financial statement for year ended octoer 2009

    the fnancial statement does not show a company registration number and not a limited company therefore can anyone confirm if i am correct in thinkng this is an unregistered company and that financial statement are for personal tax assessment

    also is it correct procedure to ask the previous accountant for working papers

    any thoughts would be much appreciated
