Hello George, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

The directors are ultimately responsible for any error made by the accountant. The latter could be held liable in a civil action by the company to recover any funds lost in the matter.

I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
