Cowboy accountants: About time
It is about time that someone did something about the so called cowboyaccountants and put us on the same commercial footing as other professionalssuch as doctors and solicitors.
I do not see any ‘Tom, Dick or Harry’ setting up in their back bedrooms after an evening course, and calling themselves doctors or solicitors open for business to the general public.
Is this not a restriction of competition? Why should it be anti-competitive to restrict the term accountant to those who worked hard to be qualified to do so? When will someone in power dig their heads out of “the sand” and become aware of the plight of the small practitioner?
