Host Richard Hattersley and editor Tom Herbert welcome two guests to the AccountingWEB podbooth. Up first is Tessa Hebditch. Tessa has carved a niche for herself under the moniker of ‘the Ethical Accountant’. So who’s better to give a verdict than Tessa on the latest disciplinary decisions coming out of the ICAEW dock?

These stories include a sacked accountant who sent an email to his former firm’s client list with the subject line: Have they screwed up your accounts? Adding to this the alleged EY money laundering cover-up, the pod team has plenty to debate around the current reputation of the profession.

We’re also joined by Richard Hepburn, who is the operations manager at Gorilla. Since Gorilla Accounting specialises in services for contractor clients, we ask Hepburn about former BBC presenter Christa Ackroyd’s latest upper tribunal defeat and the off-payroll implications the clampdown will have on his firm’s clients (a concern already shared already by many on Any Answers).

And in the ‘and finally’ section of the show, editor Tom reports back from this week’s NetSuite conference where he had the fortune of listening to Bruce Dickinson’s keynote. What can a room full of accountants possibly learn from the Iron Maiden frontman? Don’t ‘run to the hills’, stay tuned and listen to this week’s No Accounting for Taste.
