Earlier last week, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) announced that it had sanctioned PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and its audit partner Steve Denison, in relation to the 2014 audits of BHS and the Taveta Group (Taveta), following an investigation under the FRC’s Accountancy Scheme.

Case analysis: admissions lead to SRA dropping a dishonesty charge

Last month Solicitor Mohammed Abid (MA) avoided a strike-off, instead being suspended for six months for lending his mobile to a suspect in a police cell and then denying his actions to the police.  The sanction demonstrates how in some cases admissions can lead to a more favourable outcome.

GDPR: A guide for therapists

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few months, you’ll be aware that changes are afoot in the data protection world.  Your inbox is probably full of emails from organisations using various catchy phrases to get you to “opt in” to receiving communications (my favourite was headed “darling you’ve got to let me know, will you stay or will you go?” – who said data protection couldn’t be fun?!).  But what is GDPR and what does all this mean for you as a therapist?

ICAEW accountants: take action now!

On 5 June 2018, a special meeting of the ICAEW is taking place at the conclusion of the organisation’s AGM.  For any ICAEW members with an interest in the disciplinary function of their regulator, attendance at this event is a must.  Important changes to the Disciplinary Bye Laws, that will potentially affect all members, are being sought. If you cannot make it in person, vote on-line or send a proxy. In these latest proposals there is much to be applauded, but there is also much to be apprehensive about.
