Professional Negligence Claims Against Accountants; What can I claim for?
If you feel your accountant has failed in their duty of care you may have the basis of a claim.
There are many circumstances where it may be appropriate to pursue a claim against your accountant.
- When you have been provided incorrect tax advice or illegal tax strategies
- When an important deadline, e.g., annual return has been missed
- When you have not been advised properly and as a result suffer financial loss
- When an undervaluation or overvaluation of business assets has been made
- When there has been a failure to spot fraudulent/wrongful activity when auditing accounts.
Fundamentally though, the question will be of whether you, as a client, have received poor advice or audit from an accountant who owed you a duty of care that covers the error and whether you have, therefore, incurred financial loss.
At Healys, our professional negligence solicitors have a vast knowledge of these types of claims and have helped many people get the right amount of compensation. One of our team will review your situation and will advise on whether we can make a successful claim.
We offer free initial advice on your claim and if you do wish to proceed we may offer in certain circumstances a “No Win No Fee” service in the form of a Conditional Fee Agreement.
