Complaints against accountants
In many cases, an efficient and detailed response to a complaint can bring the matter to an end. However, some cases do proceed to a full investigation or even a full disciplinary committee hearing. You should take specialist advice at the earliest stage to allow your case to be presented in the best possible way.
Our professional disciplinary solicitors can guide you through each stage of the process. Where you are facing an investigation, there are several matters the investigators may focus on, including; issues relating to due care, academic issues, professional misconduct, matters pertaining to audit certification or compliance, professional competence and criminal convictions.
Powers and sanctions
The sanctions and powers available to regulatory bodies are also broad in scope. You may be facing exclusion, restriction or withdrawal of audit certification, fines and compensation or costs orders.
