Accountants & Tax

Professional accountants and their role in tax planning is increasingly under scrutiny. With this paper, we:

  • clarify the role of professional accountants in advising taxpayers and tax authorities
  • set out fundamental principles for accountants to comply with when providing tax advice

As a profession, we can contribute to developing fair and sustainable tax systems. This position paper builds on our publications the accountancy profession and taxation: doing the right thing and the role of professional accountants in tax.
