It's a shame that it's that twat Rusell who raised this issue, and in such a numpty way, because there's a real and serious debate to be had here.
And that is what an accountancy firm should provide for the money you pay them.
Scotsgal was shouted down ( and it could very well have been a sockie) but she/he/it made a valid point: when you pay someone £100 plus a month, you shouldn't really have to think about the accountancy stuff.
When I was contracting I was constantly annoyed by how little accountants actually do for their money - you can't get simpler than a contractor's accounts.

I pay my accountant on a time and materials basis, so I know exactly what he does for the money I pay him.

If you think it's a serious issue, raise it on the Legal and Accounting forum.

I seem to remember that a couple of hundred years ago a doctor pulled a tooth for a gentleman - then presented him with a bill for a guinea. The gentleman refused to pay without a full breakdown saying it was too expensive. The doctor sent a bill. "For pulling the tooth - 1 shilling. For knowing how to pull the tooth so it caused the least pain - 1 pound".

And there are plenty of accountants and plenty of competition.

+1 although without the original article its impossible to accurately comment whether Russell had a valid complaint or had just get the wrong idea about what argument NW were using for the wages part of his income.

Contractor accounts are obviously simple I would have though this years tax efficient plan could be written with full explanation on 1 side of A4.

This is why were ever possible I do my own accounts, and touch word well into year 2 the only time I have needed an accountant I have managed with the friendly advice given on these here forums. I find it astonishing that people do not know more than the very basic when it comes to a massive part of their own company which ultimately they are responsible for.

+1 although I would recommand the free version of crunch as its very good and telling you what you should be doing and acts as a decent double check for the 10 minutes a month it takes to update the account.

Of course a good accountant should be prepared for stupid clients and the help they might need, but if I were NW I would be asking him to find a new accountant after he decided to publicly insult them like that.

All I know is if I saw a Accountant posting confidential private accounting information to counter a valid criticism from a paying client , I would steer well clear.

I have to add, whoever the forum poster is - I totally agree with this statement.

I would agree too, but the point is that the accountancy firm in question, NW, did not post private confidential information relating to one of its clients, in fact they went out of their way to help their client and only when their client started throwing toys out the pram threatening legal action based upon what was commonly seen as the idiots own fault did they then describe basic accounting practices that the client failed to understand even though they had emailed them in an idiots guide, nothing personal was posted simply defending their reputation from a trolling idiot.
