If you have changed your bank account, please let us know before we undertake your tax return, otherwise you might miss out on your tax refund. We have heard of cases recently where the refund has gone to an account no longer associated with a business and the taxpayer has missed out. Make sure that you have given us your current bank account details for the account you would like your tax refunds paid to. And let us know immediately if your account details change.
