Self Employed Client Success Story
- Client Name: John
- Client’s Occupation: Taxi Driver
- Client Contact Position: Self Employed
John, a taxi driver by profession, had encountered a series of financial and tax challenges stemming from errors made by his previous accountant. The most significant issue was the improper inclusion of all of John’s income as payroll, artificially inflating his apparent income for mortgage approval, which subsequently led to an excessive tax burden. This error resulted in an amount exceeding £50,000. Feeling financially overwhelmed, John sought assistance, as he believed he was unjustly burdened with tax liabilities that were beyond his means to manage.
Additionally, John had misrepresented his income to regulatory bodies to receive government benefits and had taken full advantage of the CJRS (Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme), leading to multiple tax liabilities totaling £150,000. To compound his troubles, John’s immigration application for his wife had got to risk and he also could lose his house due to tax complications.
