ICAEW expels ex-council member

A former ICAEW council member has been expelled from the institute after she was disqualified from acting as a company director for 12 years.

Gaynor Harris, who had been an institute council member between 1989 and 1992, was barred from holding company directorships by the county court in Southampton last October.

Harris, of Sway in Lymington, Hampshire, had been a director of three companies that went into insolvent liquidation in 1997 owing the Inland Revenue and Customs & Excise more than Pounds 600,000.

An ICAEW disciplinary tribunal said: ‘A chartered accountant must show probity in all business and professional dealings.’

It added the county court that had barred Harris from being a director ‘clearly took the view that this was an extremely serious case of misconduct’.

The tribunal ruled Harris should not be allowed to re-join the institute for 12 years.

Last month the institute revealed Harris? husband and fellow director Charles Bullworthy, who had also been disqualified as a director for five years last October, had been severely reprimanded, fined Pounds 500 and ordered to pay Pounds 1,000 costs.

Harris was unavailable for comment.
