CA struck off for professional misconduct

CA struck off for professional misconduct

Scottish accountant accused of borrowed money from his client

Peter Brown, from Stewarton Main Street in Stewarton, Ayrshire has had his
name removed from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland register
after he was found guilty of professional misconduct.

He may still work as an accountant – but is barred from calling himself a
chartered accountant or having the initials ‘CA’ after his name.

In a letter written to the client around which the dispute centred, ICAS
said: ‘’The investigation committee, having accepted his resignation, determined
that its earlier finding of a prima facie case of professional misconduct shall
remain on his record and will be taken into account in the event he should
reapply for membership in the future.’
