Did they know about what would happen if they did not complete your year and in time?
This is professional negligence almost without a doubt.
You can sue for damages so long as the damages are reasonable and foreseeable. In this case based on the facts in your post it seems that these damages are reasonable and forseeable because this accounting firm either knew about the deadline or most surely should have.
I suggested as a next step you consult with a lawyer face-to-face with a view to retaining the lawyer to send this accountancy firm a demand letter demanding these damages and threatening a lawsuit.
They will have insurance to cover this and hopefully they will pass this onto their insurance he will settle in due course.
Yes. My point was that you could sue for all of these damages as in my mind they are all reasonable and forseeable and a direct result of their negligence.
You are very welcome.
