Value should be the true guide

This is a typical protectionist 'closed shop' attitude which should havedied with the dinosaurs! (Re: Cowboy accountants: About time.)

Any good firm will employ ex-VAT and Inland Revenue personnel in recognition of the fact that a general-practitioner cannot be an expert in everything.

If we as a profession are to be respected we must learn some humility andaccept the discipline of the marketplace.

Qualification in itself should not attract a premium price VALUE TO THECLIENT must be the guiding principle.

If any ‘Tom Dick & Harry’ sets up in practice and fails to deliver adequateservice then the clients will very soon appreciate the value for trueexpertise.
