I work in compliance dealing with limited licenses. Giving accountants a free pass on the corps act would be a disaster. 90% want to do the right thing, but only 30% know enough to do it properly. The unintended consequences of this would be unmitigated. A significant portion are order takers and there is an inherit conflict that could never be managed. Let's be clear here, the industry bodies see the opening and want to wedge this wide open and will work to do it. This has nothing to do with looking after clients.
