You’ve actually got several issues at play here, and they all effect each other.

You have a loan between yourself and another party, is it properly documented? With regards to them taking funds from what you earnt, if it is a proper loan repayment, then you have technically earnt the money so yes, tax is payable. However, if you have entered into a license agreement in lieu of a specific debt amount, it’s a different case all together.

It sounds like your account either does not care, or is a little out of their depth with the situation, so I would ask around anyone else you know that has a business if they can recommend a good accountant. I’ve noticed you’re down south, otherwise I would recommend Fletcher’s who have also commented on your situation.

Happy hunting,
