other ideas:
AW where accountants are challenged, questioned, stimulated and supported. AW accountants challenge real  world normsAW real world for accountants. Nothing less. AW where accountants come to learn and share their knowledge.AW rasises and discusses questions other are afraid to ask.

Steve, sorry. I would assume 10 words wasn't an absolute limit just an indication.

If it's good enough I'm sure they would use 11 or 12 words.

Word count

Don't worry about the word count too much folks, I was just trying to imply it should be as short and snappy as you can manage. Don't worry if you go over, I for one am guilty of using 20 words when 8 will do the job!

Some great suggestions and some really funny ones too. It's actually a really nice exercise for me to see what you really think of us. (Try and stick to that too, this is not about what you think of each other!)

It's Christmas time, be kind, be friendly and most of all be happy!

I like Cathy Raven Tax's line about virtual colleagues and flying solo - sums it up very well I think.

That reminds me of a terrible joke

Sean Connery is finishing up for the day on the set of his new movie. The director heads over to him and says: "So Sean, can you be back tomorrow for 10-ish?"

Sean replies: "Tenish? But I don't have a racket"!

Changing Shirley's suggestion

"AWEB for advice and support from people"

Fantastic!

"who care"

A bit too sugary for my liking - I'd go for something that gives an indication of knowledge.

How about "AccountingWeb for advice and support - there's always somebody who'll provide the answer to your problem"

To add to other comments

I'd just say that the emphasis has to be on it being for accountants, as what we all really value is opinions and advice from other experienced accountants. 

I think we would all visit less if we thought it was just a free place for non accountants to get free advice.

Sorry perhaps accountant/tax specialist

would be better. 

I spent ages trying to avoid saying qualified accountant or practising accountant so as not to exclude some, clearly I forgot the fact that the term accountant still leaves out some tax practitioners who wouldn't wish to be tarred with the accountant brush!
