Timescales to complete a piece of advice or work can be estimated at the request of each client, but this could be affected by factors such as the time taken by the court or tribunal to
offer a hearing date, the availability of relevant documents, information or witnesses, the time taken by HMRC to respond to correspondence and also my availability due to client or other work commitments, holiday or illness.
