The FSA’s announcement that it was setting up a new accounting and auditing sector team must have frightened a few people. Are accountants suddenly to come under its stern regulatory glare?

Soon after we heard this news an email arrived about the watchdog’s ‘ground-breaking study to measure the real costs of financial regulation’, to be undertaken, coincidentally, by Deloitte. TS hopes those writing the report will take into account the costs of their former colleague.
