THIS YEAR’S ACCOUNTANCY AGE FINANCIAL POWER LIST has caused something of a stir, with approximately three-quarters of readers saying they completely disagree.
A fifth of the 84 readers polled mostly agreed with the list, while 3% completely agreed and the remaining 2% slightly disagreed.
The Power List is a run-down of the most powerful names in accountancy and finance in the coming year, with this year’s list headed up by HM Revenue & Customs chief executive Lin Homer, closely followed by Labour MP and chair of Public Accounts Committee Margaret Hodge.
