I have been a Chartered Accountant since 1967 and proud of it. However, I worry about a recent incursion by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAE&W) into the political arena.
The Institute has decreed that proposals to reform the child benefit system offend EU rules. They argue that taxing middle-income residents could be discriminatory because UK citizens could be denied handouts which would remain available to citizens of European countries.
What a load of cobblers!
