As the end of the traditional 9 - 5 working day means longer hours for many, the No Accounting for Taste team discusses the impact burnout culture and stress has had on accountants, alongside the latest headlines.

Joining AccountingWEB’s business editor Francois Badenhorst and practice correspondent Richard Hattersley this week is Countingup’s Andrew Garvey.

Garvey has worked closely with accountants since he was the ICAEW’s business development manager over ten years ago. Since then he has seen how the role of an accountant has evolved and in turn, the impact this has had on some accountant's stress levels.

The pod also runs through the biggest stories making the headlines in accountancy this week, including a £3m fine for KPMG and a tax agent accused of dishonest conduct.

Usually, it is quite difficult to limit the working hours of accountants according to administrative regulations in most companies and businesses because of the flexible nature of work and not within a certain scope of accounting.
