You don't have a false statement so much as a logical paradox: when a
trader has no accountant, he is his own accountant -- structurally,
it's similar to 'the village barber shaves only those men who do not
shave themselves'; the statement nullifies its own truth.
Add the word 'external' before the first instance of 'accountant' and
you'll have a true statement.

Arguably, sure. I'm not sure I'd go for that, but it has the virtue
of being a creative interpretation of commonly-accepted terms rather
than something completely heterodox.
