Thanks, any views on the whether HMRC or the BSB/SRA are likely to pursue the lawyer?

Why don't you make your reports and find out, frad?

I'm not sure why someone would have "cash for no Vat" conversations with a customer and then turn the customer in to the authorities for aiding tax fraud. Surely it would be easier for the authorities to pursue the trader, perhaps looking in to past transactions rather than a customer? I'm assuming the burden of evidence would be greater to show a customer conspired to assist tax evasion, rather than simply auditing a trader who had confessed to establish a historic bill for unpaid taxes.

I'm assuming the builder and the client have had a fall out and thus threatening to shop the client on ethical grounds is some sort of leverage?
My suggestions are not legal advice

Or alternatively it is third party reporting both?

For the sake of clarity, I cannot imagine this going anywhere unless the sums involved are substantial and the evidence very much clearer than you might normally expect.
