No Accounting for Taste ep28: Naughty accountants special
The AccountingWEB team reviews this month’s disciplinary orders and asks a larger question about how accountants can manage their online reputation.

This week’s podcast features two accountants who will receive the figurative coal under their Christmas tree. Two well-read stories on AccountingWEB from the past week saw a partner wrongly file a tax return and an accountant posting sexist and homophobic comments on Facebook.
News of the insulting Facebook comments also coincided with an article published this past week on social media etiquette.
The pod squad discusses some of the important lessons from these tales, including pausing before hitting that Facebook share button.
Joining Tom Herbert this week are practice correspondent Richard Hattersley and Sift portfolio finance director Mike Copping.
