This week the pod tackles ethics in the profession, the thorny issue of EBITDA, Ken Dodd’s inheritance tax and the Chancellor’s Spring Statement.
Joining AccountingWEB editor Tom Herbert to pore over the week’s events in accountancy are Richard Hattersley and Francois Badenhorst.
Columnist Philip Fisher’s piece on how the ‘win-at-all-costs’ mentality has seeped into the world of accounting certainly generated a lively debate on the site, while a more technical (but no less passionate) discussion was also going on about the merits (or otherwise) of EBITDA.
Philip Hammond rolled out the dad jokes for his new fiscal event, but apart from a slightly improved economic forecast and a ream of tax consultations, there was little meat on the bones for commentators to chew on.
