Hi all,

Does anyone know where I can verify that a tax advisor is legitimate?

Probably not as I don't think it's protected. Are they selling you an Insurance base savings plan thats tax efficient? If so RUN VERY FAST AWAY

Re: How to check tax advisor is legitimate

If they approached you, tell them to get lost.

If you approached them, surely you had a reason to do so? Either a recommendation or you found them through some reliable route?

You can check the company in the companies register (plenty of free online sources for that if you just need to confirm company existence and main officers).

Check the people involved on LinkedIn or similar.
