Living up to the stereotype

Whilst researching something else entirely I came upon the Tax Advisers Benevolent Fund, which did leave me a little nonplussed. Surely such people would be the least in need of benevolence, aren’t they all supposed to have all their affairs (and indeed paperclips) neatly in order?

There was but one course of action, consult the Charity Commission website! This oracle revealed my suspicions were true, the charity takes in far more than it pays  out and has relatively vast reserves of just over £320,000. Somewhat surprisingly in the last year payout actually dropped, seemingly the apocalypse in financial services has bypassed tax advising types, that or the beancounters in charge of the charity are living up to their tight-arsed stereotype. As you may have guessed from the title of this post, I favour the later interpretation.
