UK: OVER HALF OF ACCOUNTANTS PRESSURED TO ACT UNETHICALLY

On 4th September, ICAEW reported that a Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) survey found that 57% of the 487 accountants surveyed had felt pressured to act unethically, but only 8% say they have fully carried out an unethical action.  The most common actions professionals have felt pressured to carried out were supporting excessively optimistic budgets and business cases, dodging policies, standing orders and other regulations, and unreasonably downplaying risks.
