Land believes the public is not convinced by ‘self-regulation’ and that accountancy needs a fresh start.

In an interview with a Sunday newspaper, Land said he believed the government should be funding accountancy regulation directly or from a levy on listed companies.

His remark come after the Department of Trade and Industry began a review of the Accountancy Foundation which is currently funded by the six accountancy institutes.
