Senior Accounting Officer compliance

The Senior Accounting Officer should be the person who has overall responsibility for the company’s financial reporting. They should have the information and authority to meet their legal duties which are to ensure that the company establishes and maintains suitable tax accounting arrangements.

The Senior Accounting Officer must submit a certificate to HMRC stating that the company had appropriate tax accounting and reporting processes in place.
