A fire in the toilets forced staff to flee the English ICA's headquarter's last week. Double tax changes in the Budget have led Allied Zurich to quit the London Stock exchange.

Four fire engines screamed into the institute’s Moorgate Place headquarters to deal with the incident last week.

Allied Zurich’s move to quit London in favour of Switzerland followed mounting protests from the profession over Gordon Brown’s move to end the use of offshore shell companies through which UK-headquartered companies received dividends from overseas. PricewaterhouseCooper’s Peter Wyman led the profession’s protests, which led to an unusually bitter attack on the firm from chancellor Gordon Brown.

A new feature on AccountancyAge.com looks at changing attitudes among accountancy firms to office wear in the wake of the move by Deloitte & Touche to relax its dress code.
