16 July - Ask ICAS: Should tax advisers be regulated, and if so who by?
HMRC has long had concerns about the standards of some tax practitioners – and the words of the Financial Secretary in the foreword to an open call for evidence are chilling ‘….Some advisers are incompetent, some unprofessional, a few actively corrupt.’ What is the government likely to do about this?
Join this Ask ICAS webinar on 16 July, 11am – 12 noon to discuss the thorny topic and to help shape ICAS input to the call for evidence.
