Birthday honours for five accountants

Queesn's birthday honors list sees the OBE's and two MBEs awarded for services to the accountancy profession

The birthday honours list this weekend awarded the accountancy profession
three OBEs and two MBEs for services to the profession.

Paul Aplin, the outgoing chair of the tax faculty at the ICAEW was given an
OBE as well as former ICAEW president Ian Morris who presided from 2005 to 2006.

Aplin was given the accolade for public service and services to the
accountancy profession with IAASB former president John Kellas also picking up a
OBE gong

Olive Gardner and Robert Gray picked up their prestigious MBE for services to
the profession in Scotland.

Aplin said: ‘The OBE was completely unexpected and I was left utterly
speechless when the letter arrived few weeks ago. I still can’t quite believe
it.’

It was largely due to Aplin that the plans, originally announced in the
Carter Report, to bring forward the tax filing date to Novemeber was abandoned.

He has been the ICAEW’s tax faculty chairman for the past two years but steps
down from the role this month and continues as a technical committee member.

‘I’ve found the past two years as tax faculty chairman as enjoyable as they
have been challenging’ he said.

Aplincontinues to work for A C Mole & Sons which he joined in 1980 and
became the firm’s first tax partner in 1992.
