Hi, I am a book-keeper to a one person ltd company. He has an accountant, but he is not happy with them. He is under the impression that he could get better tax savings advise elsewhere. He wants me to set up a meeting for him with an accountant/tax advisor, to see if they can make him better savings than his current accountant. Is this possible whilst he still has an accountant acting for him?:confused1:

Thanks for reading

    Yep, it's absolutely fine. The only no-no is engaging the client and commencing work before you've sent the etiquette letter to check that there are no professional objections to your acting, which there might be (like unpaid fees).

    It's a bit like getting a car insurance quote before your existing policy expires.

    Cheers,

    Mike.
