ICAEW’s Sophie Wales, Philippa Kelly and Lindsey Wicks join host Tom Herbert to discuss the boundaries between accountants’ personal and business lives, the fifth SEISS grant and the difference between e-money and bank accounts.

Welcome to this ICAEW Insights podcast, where we analyse the latest news from the world of accountancy, business and finance.

On this show, we’ll look at how the boundaries between accountants’ personal and business lives have blurred during the pandemic, resulting in a rising number of disciplinary cases involving social media. What are the professional bodies doing about this?

ICAEW has responded to the government’s future-facing Tax Administration Framework Review, which is likely to affect all taxpayers, businesses and those who advise them. We’ll examine the review and ask why the Institute has called for more resourcing for HMRC to deliver the government’s vision.

Details of the fifth self-employment income support scheme grant have been released - how different is it from its predecessors and what should you look out for?

And what is the difference between an e-money business account and a traditional business bank account, and why does it matter?
