Barnyard is retiring
Q: Why is Stephen Barnyard (or is it Banyard?;)) so upbeat and effusive about RTI?
A: He is retiring soon!
He could of course come back as a paid consultant, if things don't run smoothly;)

In The Bin
Factoid: The new magazine is not "free" (despite what the ICAEW says), the costs of publication and delivery are built into the annual ICAEW subscription (whether or not the member actually wants the magazine).
It will be interesting to see if the new magazine suffers the same fate as Accountancy currently suffers in the hands of many of the members of the ICAEW, namely being cast into the bin still in its plastic wrapper.

The concept of enrolment is designed to make agents relient on HMRC for accreditation. Agents' livelihood will depend more on their relationship with HMRC, than the interests of their clients.
