It's best to keep records going back 20 years (obviously if you've been in this business that length of time), as 20 years is the length of time the HMRC can investigate backwards.... Read More

My patience is being tested - Should I evict?

I've been here before. The only option for me was to evict using a s21. As people have mentioned before, make sure ALL the paperwork is up to speed.
