    Angry Mike Kerridge AWOL

    Well it looks like Kerridge has gone AWOL, after god knows how may years of broken promises and huge bills - he's not answering his phone/email and his company is no longer at the registered address.

    I've not heard from him in over 6 months and nearly ended up with a late filing penalty on my 2019 return as he didn't even bother to contact me to get it filed before the end of September - despite knowing that I had followed his advice in January.

    Has anyone had any luck tracking him down and getting an update.

    He was the charlatan that worked with Martin Priest in Guernsey to facilitate some real dodgy schemes. I can't believe you (or anyone) actually thought he would be able to help you. I heard he was asking for upfront fees of £10k to just "help" people settle with HMRC!

    It's unlikely you'll hear from him now. Your best chance is to get a few people together and sue him for malpractice, if at all possible.

    Another ambulance chaser? He has a lot of history with many companies on google, it seems.

    They are all ambulance chaser in the end, but at least Kerridge only chased those arrangements that he advised on - so far as I'm aware.

    @Chimpmaster - It certainly wasn't £10k joining fee for me, however after 7 years of paying for his services I've probably shelled out about that much. Still less than my tax bill, and probably about the same as any other firm (provided the work has been done). He never had the same numbers as big group so the costs were always going to be more.

    From what I have been able to understand, Kerridge advised Priest who facilitated companies for Mark Turner - Turners dirty little paws are on companies selling schemes to this date, which is unbelievable.

    It made scene at the time to use the man who advised on the schemes to put up a defense. It still does now, all I want to know is has anyone spoken to him or know where he is? in the past his company has kept us up to date or has at least responded to emails/calls. Now we have heard nothing since March - not even a reminder to submit out delayed 2019 returns, or any assistance with disclosures.

    I will say that if the above fee value is correct I seriously doubt that any of our clients, even those who joined on Day 1, have paid even half of that in fees.

    I would hope not - Big Group have got a huge number of participants. I doubt that you have managed to get sufficient fees tho, for the work you have done.

    Hopefully this thread remains. When his named has been mentioned in the past the thread has been closed. I think it is good to keep it open to at least make people stop and think.
