Arise, Sir Andrew.

Likierman is credited with converting the civil service from cash accounting to a modern day commercial-style accruals system, based on 'resource accounting' principals.

He was president of CIMA from 1991 to 1992 and has been a member of the Accounting Standards Board since 1993.

He will be given the title of ‘Sir’ as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Joining him on the honours list is Nick Montagu, chairman of the board of the Inland Revenue, who will be awarded the ‘Order of the Bath’, given for service of the highest calibre.

Montagu has led five major headline projects for the Revenue, including the working families tax credit, policing of the minimum wage as well as launching the government’s online self-assessment service.

A further nine Inland Revenue staff receive Orders of the British Empire.

David Brodie, founding director of TaxAid, receives an OBE for his services to low income taxpayers, while City stalwart Philip Sellers is awarded a CBE for his services to accountancy and audit.
