"Accountants' report"

Given than anyone can call themselves an "accountant" (a whole different topic - let's not get into qualified or unqualified), can anyone prepare a set of accounts (assuming they're competent to do so - or even if they're not!) and sign off an "accountants' report" in the name of a firm saying they've prepared accounts from the client's records????
