Don't make it personal
I have sacked a couple of clients for generally not heeding advice, constantly leaving it to the last minute and behaving like cornered dogs when things don't go their way. I issue a disengagement letter with a covering note simply stating that we no longer have the resources necessary to support their business at this stage in their development...keep the personal side out...I have always received a very nice letter back from them wishing us all the best !

Code of Ethics
Did anyone realise that our (that is ICAS, presumably ICAEW?) code of ethics states that in relation to audit or financial reporting work 'a member should not make an unsolicited personal visit or telephone call to a person who is not a client with a view to obtaining professional work from the non-client?' Just saying...
