Public Trust in Accountants

Public trust in Accountants being eroded by qualified Accountants Shock Horror

Didn't find your answer?

https://www.accountingweb.co.uk/business/finance-strategy/kpmg-fined-ps3...

In the wake of the most recent news, 9 out of 10 clients of those Qualified by Experience  who expressed a preference,  expressed dismay at the further spate of inappropriate behaviour by Chartered Firms. 

An unamed client was quoted as saying, "we just can't understand what these big firms do, it is all far too confusing, they go beyond the bounds of corner cutting  and incompetence that we are used to experiencing."

Another client commented, "at least we know where we stand with that QBE lot,  basically they are the savers range, Those qualified ones, it is like shopping in Waitrose, you pay the price but at the end of the day it is still just one more empty container in the rubbish bin of life"

The Big Two point Five were unavailable for comment.

Bailey. Emmablyth is not so pusillanimous to use 'anonymous'.

If nothing else this thread has been an education, I've never encountered that word before.

Is someone using word of the day toilet paper?

My favourite song lyric from 'The Rutles'.
'You're so pusillanimous, oh yeah
Nature's calling and I must go there.'

Andy I would never flaunt myself anonymously and I would add that I respect the members here.
I like to stand up and be counted

"they go beyond the bounds of corner cutting and incompetence that we are used to experiencing."

Doesn't this refer to QBE accountants who are DODGY?

But 8 out of 10 cats couldn't believe it wasn't butter.

I wonder if anyone has actually ever deliberated whether they should appoint an accountant from the 'Big Two point Five' or one QBE?

Good lunch Mr Bailey?

Please trust me this is not my topic.
Further, I have no gripe with any institution or forum members.

I am a little bemused by this post.
I hope the OP will add meat on the bone so that I can pick it off

And there was I thinking I had a distinctive writing style.

I am sorry, even I could not let you all march Emma and Mr Bailey to the gallows, they are innocent.

You cannot possibly have taken the original post as serious, surely not.

I love Waitrose and it's my closest shop!

Most of my clients couldn't get that many words into one sentence.
