I am quite shocked at what you say re ICAEW's reaction to a person swearing. They were not the slightest bit interested in an accountant calling me 'devil incarnate' when i asked for help, or for his firm endorsing share fraud, or for him taking money without an invoice - all when he was supposed to have a Fiduciary Duty of Care. But then i think it does depend on the level of member subs that your company gives ICAEW.
ICAEW said to me they cant do anything unless the accountant is convicted and the police said to me 'well the regulatory body didnt see a problem with what he as done'.
So he is free to abuse others.
Corruption in this country, when you do seek justice, is eye opening.

I am sorry that i am not answering your question per se but I do not expect that I am on my own in considering that executors can consider Wills and Estates can be an open till / open to abuse. Please sign my petition and pass onto anyone else that may be interested/affected https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/209912

Very little in my experience. The accountant I complained about (who refused us information, telling us falsely that we had no legal right) was so arrogant he did not even reply to our MP. He too had a conflict of interest being employed by other parties to the matter that would no doubt benefit from him denying us information) The ICAEW protected him on every count. There is a massive issue here in regard to accountability and 'self regulation' When the regulatory bodies are paid by those they are supposed to be regulating I guess that it all depends on the 'power'/position of the complainer and perhaps the 'subs' value of the firm. They seem to feel above regulatory scope, and the law if they have more money than the other party.
