We agree never to share information relating to the business of the client with any third party without prior consent of the client, unless required to do so by law or to comply with regulations.
We may obtain, use, process and disclose personal data about the client in order that we may discharge the services agreed, and for other related purposes including updating and enhancing client records, analysis for management purposes and statutory returns, crime prevention and legal and regulatory compliance. The client has a right of access, under data protection legislation, to the personal data that we hold about them.

Legislation and compliance
We are obliged by law and by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants to undertake checks to ensure that the client is operating lawfully. By agreeing to our terms of business the client accepts that we are authorised to complete such checks as necessary.
Under Money Laundering Regulations introduced in December 2007 it is a criminal offence if we do not report suspicious transactions or if we inform a client that a report has been made against them.
The anti money laundering regulations means that it is necessary for us to keep evidence that we have verified the client’s identity, current address and business details. We may request from the client, and retain, such information and documentation as we require for these purposes and/or make searches of appropriate databases.
Limitation of Liability
As Chartered Management Accountants, we have a duty of care to the client and we must observe the highest standards of conduct and integrity. Liability to the client is limited to losses, damages, costs and expenses caused by our negligence or wilful default.
We will provide professional services with reasonable care and skill. However, we will not be responsible for any losses, penalties, surcharges, interest or additional tax liabilities arising from the supply by the client or others of incorrect or incomplete information, or from the failure by the client or others to supply any appropriate information or the client’s failure to act on our advice or respond promptly to communications from us or the regulatory authorities.
The advice which we provide is for the sole use of the client and does not constitute advice to any third party to whom a client may communicate it. We accept no legal responsibility from third party use of the financial information provided by us.
Our fees are based upon the complexity, risk and time spent on the services and advice that we provide. Where requested we may indicate a fixed fee or range of fees for the provision of a particular service.
