The problem is that A to C have never covered all circumstances. Had she said she had another job she would have been on basic rate to March then had to wait another 6 months minimum before she got her over paid tax back. But yes she should have admitted the error when she got her annual statement - but that comes out in October!

Is this article a parody of us accountants?

When with one of the big 4 we were trained to look at figures analytically rather than actually verify them. So if the figures looked right (on trend, agreement with budgets, competitors ratios etc) then they were right.
I protested in vain that if the figures looked right it was because someone was fiddling them that way.

What has the profession come to that this suggestion is even being made? The old school accountants who practised ethics as part of the job will be turning in their graves.
I would say it is time to put our house in order - except it is far too late.

Still don't understand the problem but HMRC describing the loans as "disguised" remuneration doesn't help. This was remuneration plain and simple and recipients didn't pay their tax when it was received. What ever it is now it is not retrospective legislation - just the enforcement of legislation that has always been there.

What a depressing debate. I never realised so many of my fellow professionals confuse what is right and wrong with what is legislated against and what isn't. Must be a generational thing I guess.

Sorry but you shouldn't be in the profession.

Why on earth has this taken so long and why are accountants still arguing about it?
Directors/managers/players (and the club owner) were lent money with a nod and a wink that they didn't need to repay it.
That is income yesterday today and tomorrow and on any planet in the universe.
A lot of accountants here need to get a grip before the whole profession is a laughing stock.

Ms Ross Martin needs to pay a visit to the real world.

I think every accountant in the land will agree with this article.
The world has gone mad indeed and xenophobic racism seems to be driving every election victory.
