ACCA calls for the term 'Accountant' to be protected

Friday, 20 June 2008

The ACCA are calling for the term ‘accountant’ to be legally defined and protected.

There is an increasing number of cases where people have been given poor advice by individuals claiming to be qualified accountants, when they have little or no professional training or qualifications. ACCA believe that introducing protection for the term ‘accountant’ is in the best interests of all, as it is both unfair and contrary to public interest to have unregulated, possibly untrained and uninsured individuals presenting themselves as accountants.

This will also presumably include the title Tax Accountant, and the expression 'qualified by experience' will hold very little value if all this goes through.

There’s a Downing Street online petition, started by ACCA member Alan Shooter FCCA, that people can sign.
