Red-faced Tenon trips up over interim results.

So it seems that even the newest and brightest bods in the accountancy profession are not above making the odd lapse here and there.

For it would appear that the hungry beast they call accountancy-based services group Tenon, which has spent much of the last 18 months acquiring accountancy talent from across the country, made a bit of a slip up recently when it issued interim results for the six months to 30 June.

It quickly realised it had mixed up its movement in gross work in progress figures for its external charges.

Red-faced finance chiefs were forced to reissue their results.

With so many accountants now part of the extended Tenon family, the length and breadth of the UK, such mistakes are surely surprising.

After all, Tenon’s website does proudly state, ‘choose us and you access world-class advice from experts throughout the UK’.

Maybe Tenon should have taken its own advice.
