Faisal regularly appears on behalf of the Taxation Disciplinary Board, the regulatory body for the CIOT and ATT. In its most complex regulatory case to date, former CIOT fellow Deborah Annells (Hong Kong) was found guilty of multiple counts of dishonesty and expelled from the institute.
The press release reads:
The Disciplinary Tribunal, following its hearing from 10 to 17 June 2013, determined that Ms Deborah Annells, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), had committed six separate breaches of the fundamental principle of integrity as set out in the Professional Rules and Practice Guidelines of the CIOT (PRPG, 2011 edition). These breaches arose from complaints made by one client, one former colleague and a former joint venture partner in Singapore. Upon allegations of dishonesty being proved, two further charges were not pursued.
