Accountant petitions government for legal protection

An accountant has begun an online campaign asking government to provide legal
protection to the term ‘accountant’.

London-based Alan Shooter, of Shooter & Co, found out about the
government’s online petition facility, he decided to use it to call for
protection of the profession.

Shooter believes that new money-laundering rules, which are to take effect in
December, do not offer sufficient protection to the profession.

The petition can be found at
here.
