Changing accountant is a very straightforward process. You can either inform them yourself of your decision to change, or your new accountant can take care of this for you, if you would prefer not to be involved.
If you opt for your new accountant to inform your old accountant of the change over then they will simply write a standard letter to inform them of this. They will also request any information needed in order to complete your next set of accounts and bring you completely up to date with your tax affairs.
If it is not possible to retrieve information from your previous accountant then it is likely that your new accountant can gather enough information from your records and HMRC to be able to proceed with your accounts anyway.
