Clarifications to the ARB's tax situation
I would like you to please publish a correction about your article headlined 'ARB stumps up unpaid tax bill' (AJ 19.5.05).
I made two things clear in the course of the telephone conversation, neither of which have been printed.
The first is that the payments do not relate solely to board members. They relate to all those members of the profession who have assisted the ARB by serving on working parties, committees, assessment panels, competence groups and others.
The second is that I did not 'admit' to anything that has not been previously published.
At the board meeting of 11 November 2004, the board's treasurer explained what had occurred and the settlement that had been reached with the Inland Revenue.
