Proposal 59 : Create a certification for freelance accountants.

Create a certification for freelance accountants.

At present, when a freelance accountant has done work for a company and failed to send the government the appropriate sales taxes and deductions from his/her income, the Department of Revenue may prosecute the company for non-payment and force it into bankruptcy. From now on, such accountants will have to obtain certification from the Department of Revenue for the management of money owed to the Department of Revenue.

If a company does business with such an accountant, it will not be held accountable for non-payment of the amount owing.
