No Accounting for Taste ep94: Tax year end, risk and culture

On this week’s show the AccountingWEB editorial team reviews the biggest stories from the world of accountancy, including a potential change to the tax year, and find out why firms should focus on culture. 

Albert Goodman partner Sophie Parkhouse joins No Accounting for Taste regulars Richard Hattersley and John Stokdyk to chew over the latest news on this week’s show. 

Sophie is the technical and training partner at the South West based firm and has a particular interest in people and culture. Albert Goodman recently featured in the Best Companies 2021 list across the South West, which recognised the firm’s efforts in personal growth, wellbeing and teamwork. 

As firms gear up for their post-pandemic back to work plans, Sophie explains why culture matters and shares the ingredients of her firm’s employee engagement strategy. 

Also on this week’s show, the team mulls over this week's big stories. Grabbing the headlines include a potential change to the tax year end and the effect this may have on the processes within a firm, two IR35 cases which highlight the importance of control in the decision, and the Supreme Court ruling that Grant Thornton must pay £13.4m over negligent advice - a story that highlights the importance of risk management.
