Other cases heard by the Tribunal on 28 April 2010
The Disciplinary Tribunal, at its hearing on 28 April 2010, determined that a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation was in breach of Rule 2.1.1 (Conduct) as set out in the Institute’s Professional Rules and Practice Guidelines (PRPG) 2006.
The Tribunal found that the member had performed his professional work inefficiently to such an extent as to be likely to bring discredit to himself and the Institute, by failing to carry out the work promised to a client. A second charge that the member had failed to be courteous and considerate to his client was not found to be proved.
The Tribunal ordered that the member should be required to apologise in writing to his client and to pay £1,500 towards the costs. The Tribunal also directed that, in view of the member's very long unblemished record and the fact that his failings in this case were at least contributed to by illness, his name should not be mentioned in any publication of this decision.
