Accountants providing advice!
What self serving rubbish this proposal presents.
If accountants were subject to the same scrutiny as applied to advisers people would be stunned by the gross incompetence and mediocrity of a significant number of practitioners.
I see plenty of financial statements and have spoke to many accountants and regularly come away with the same impression - these people would be useless as advisers. Before people scream about my accusations please note I was many years ago an accountant.
Even I struggle to find an accountant to do a decent good on my financial affairs and no way would I want them providing financial advice to anyone I know.
