Other cases heard by the Committee on 11 December 2007
The Disciplinary Committee heard a case in which a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation was charged with four breaches of the Institute's Professional Rules and Practice Guidelines 2006.
It was alleged that the member had failed to respond to repeated requests for professional clearance from the complainant and from a successor tax adviser, and that he had failed to comply with the disciplinary processes of the Taxation Disciplinary Board by failing to respond to requests for information. The member admitted the charges and apologised for his conduct. In the light of information regarding the member's medical condition, the Committee decided that it would be inappropriate to apply any sanction or to publish details of its order.
The Disciplinary Committee agreed that the Chartered Institute of Taxation should dismiss charges involving a member against whom the Investigation Committee had found that there was a prima facie case of a breach of Rule 2.8 of the Professional Rules and Practice Guidelines 2006, in that the member had appeared to hint at notifying the authorities under anti-money laundering regulations. The Institute presented no evidence against the member.
