THE PROFESSION’S WATCHDOG has appointed several new members to the accounting council responsible for advising the body on reporting standards.

Among the Financial Reporting Council’s new appointees is Deloitte’s Veronica Poole, currently senior accounting technical partner, UK national head of accounting and global IFRS leader for Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited.

She is joined by BDO’s director of technical standards Anthony Appleton; GlaxoSmithKline’s director in external reporting Chris Buckley; Allianz Global Investors’ head of equity research Gunnar Millar; and Investment Management Association’s director of corporate governance and reporting Liz Murrall.

The FRC’s Accounting Council is responsible for advising the FRC board on reporting standards and monitoring international financial reporting developments.

Roger Marshall, (pictured) chair of the Accounting Council, said: “We are delighted to welcome Veronica, Liz, Chris, Anthony and Gunnar on to the Accounting Council. They each have deep expertise in their respective fields and will provide the Council with both technical knowledge and a wide understanding of the key issues it faces.”

The FRC also announced that it would create a UK GAAP technical advisory group to provide advice on accounting and company-related law to the Accounting Council – with a particular focus on small and medium-sized entities. 

Members of the technical advisory group include: Mazars’ partner Steven Brice; the ICAEW’s technical manager Eddy James; KPMG partner Lynn Pearcy; PwC partner Iain Selfridge; Deloitte director Ken Rigelsford; Chiene & Tait partner Kenneth McDowell. There are two observers of the group – HMRC director Matt Blake and BIS assistant director Vickie Wood.
