CIoT backs qualification call for all advisers

Chartered Institute of Taxation says that anyone giving out tax advice should have a formal qualification

The Chartered Institute of Taxation called for a clampdown on unqualified
accountants and tax advisers which would mean they would need professionally
recognised qualifications before they can provide services.

MPs are considering legal protection for the term ‘accountant’ in an Early
Day Motion, but the CIoT said it would go further and include not only
accountants but also tax and financial advisers.

Nick Goulding, CIoT President said: ‘The time has come to recognise the
importance of obtaining professional qualifications in order to provide tax
services to both business and the public.’
