Interesting approach ..

So the question has to be -

Why not do away with the middle man (Accountant) entirely and have clients submit directly to MYOB's Accountants Resourcing. After all they are staffed by '.. ACAs and ACCAs ..'

Furthermore a direct approach should be cheaper for the client than using their own accountant
