English ICA disciplinaries

An accountant jailed for three years for deception and fraud has been excluded from the English ICA for ten years.

The institute’s disciplinary committee imposed the ten-year ban on Robert John Gilbert of Bridgend, South Wales, who was convicted last October.

He was also ordered to pay #900 costs.

Jonathan Andrew Lodder of Bridgford, Nottingham, was severely reprimanded and ordered to pay #1,000 costs for failing to file a client’s accounts with the Inland Revenue for six years to January 1996. An institute tribunal in May also found he had failed to co-operate with the new accountant who helped the client to resolve her affairs.

Lorelie Marion Staines of Walton-on-Thames was severely reprimanded and fined #750 with #2,000 costs as a result of her 1994 conviction for insider dealing.

The appeal committee upheld a severe reprimand, #3,000 fine and #1,000 costs order imposed on Bernard Michael Joseph of London EC1, who pleaded guilty in March 1997 to supplying goods without providing security to Customs & Excise.

Andrew William Streeter of Carlton, Notts, was fined #1,000 with #500 costs for using confidential information to solicit work from 16 former clients of a rival accountant.

Phillip Garry Howard of Middleton, Manchester, was stripped of his membership on 15 July for failing to pay a #1,000 fine and #370 costs on a disciplinary charge of failing to answer enquiries from the institute.
