Intellectual Property

DawnyDawny Settling In NicelyMAAT, AAT Licensed Accountant Posts: 60
Hello does anyone have any advice on intellectual property?

If I produce a cash flow for the purpose of determining investment required for a client, is the actual cash flow itself the property of the client?

Also, when reconciling control accounts and VAT returns for month and year end, are the working papers themselves as well as the final result/return the property of the client?

As background, I am transferring work that I have previously carried out for a client to an internal book keeper and I have been asked to train that person. I am just trying to determine what workings the client is legally entitled to.

Thank you.
