The Sunday Times Rich List sees a number of accountants riding high in the charts.

ICAEW-qualified Peter Hargreaves, co-founder of Hargeaves Lansdown, comes in at 111th with a £570m fortune.

Jasminder Singh, an accountant who work in the hotel business with his family's Edwardian Group, is placed at 204th with £330m.

Peter Harrison, a chartered accountant from Cheshire, is 327th at £199m. He bought and sold three retail parks last year, making a £10m profit – but won't see a penny as the sales were undertaken on behalf of the Peter Harrison Foundation, which helps disabled and disadvantaged children.

Iceland head Andrew Pritchard is worth £166m, and placed 395th on the Rich List.

New entries include Aref Karim, a charatered accountant whose Quality Capital Management business in Surrey has been a "huge success", according to the Rich List. He is placed 431st at £150m.

Simon Dolan, owner of SJD Accountancy is a new entry at 967th, with £65m.
