    Thanks for the link, but I note that there were none in Wales. Surely there must be at least one good accountants in Wales?

    Does it matter?

    A while back I used & recommended Uptons.

    Obviously I'm not with Uptons anymore and moved to a company based more locally.

    Only just saw this thread....

    Not going to name names but under no circumstances go anywhere near the PCG recommended accountant listed in Bridgend.

    I went with them and ended up moving after 2 months. Mate of mine (also a contractor) did too and it went the same way. Totally useless waste of money - knows nothing about IT contractors.

    I moved to NixonWilliams. Never met my accountant - all done by email but excellent service from them.

    Thanks for the update, it seems there are a fair few cowboys out there by all accounts and that includes Umbrella Companies as well as Accountants.

    Yeh. To be honest, I thought PCG accredited - must be good. It turns out they need to pass some sort of exam to get this (and probably pay the PCG to be listed).

    Looked like the company in question could see some lucrative dosh from IT contractors and fancied a bit of that. Turned out didn't really have a clue about any of it. Made a complete mess of almost everything they did (couldnt even arrange to send me the correct direct debit form).
