I agree. Accountants already fill the advice gap. Illegally and inappropriately in many cases. By all means let's get them licensed so that ASIC will do something to stop the shoddy, conflicted advice so many accountants provide to their naively trusting clients. While accountants remain unlicensed ASIC allows them to get away with stuff licensed advisers would be crucified for.
