Accountancy Age reports that "strong opposition" has been voiced against the ICAEW's move to outline how advising on aggressive tax avoidance is a potential disciplinary matter.
"Three-quarters of the 60 readers polled online by Accountancy Age said they did not agree with the ICAEW's decision, while 17% were completely behind the move. Some 5% agreed, but felt the guidance was too vague, and 3% were unsure."Doubtless those residing in the ICAEW bunker will be bemused, bewildered and dismissive about the result.
However, those who reside in bunkers would do well to listen to voices outside if they wish to retain office!
