And I think I'm in the right profession because I love my job and my clients are very happy with my services, but sometimes I do wonder whether it's ethical to have one taxpayer on a low-average income pay more tax than a high income earner who has structured their financial affairs in a more tax-effective way.
It also makes me feel uncomfortable when I see directors of companies purposely pay themselves low salaries to avoid child support.

I didn't really explain myself well in my original post. I get that people don't like paying tax, and I'm thankful for that because it keeps me busy, but ethically speaking, shouldn't we be happy to pay tax so that the more disadvantaged in society, not to mention all the public services we all benefit from, can be funded?

In my career I've been subjected to bullying on two occasions. Once, the manager quit after HR took my side. They only did this because my two predecessors quit and they'd been sued by the one before. The second time I was being bullied by a high earner. It was made crystal clear to me by HR that this person wanted me gone and it was going to happen one way or another because they were worth more to the company than me.
So I don't think they're unethical people, but I think they do have to do unethical things. As an insurance lawyer, I completely understand what jobs like that are like.

My grandfather died in the war.
Deep down I'm a pacifist so that's where my post comes from. I am aware of other roles they have.
The primary job of the military is to defend the country. The point of having a defence force is that in times of need you will be called to battle. Australian Air Force currently carrying out repeated attacks in Iraq and Syria. That's the bottom line. I don't think they are bad people it's just not something I can relate to. My stance has changed dramatically over the years since getting a lot older. When I was in year 10 I actually went to HMAS Watson for work experience.

Also if you are liable to pay more tax it usually means that you are doing well. So stop the whining ;-)
There's many tax concessions and offset that I personally find unfair and yes unethical.
It doesn't make accountants unethical.
