Info from Previous Accountants

I started in Practice in January, and have my first Self Assessment client. I have asked their previous accountant for some Capital Allowance bf figures. Could someone just confirm if they should be charging for this ? Am I nieve in thinking that this will be provided for free ?

    They should not make a charge for this. Standard practice is to do it for free.
    ICAEW etc expressly forbid it.

    If the outgoing accountant is not a member of a professional body, he can charge what he likes.
