Legally anyone can call themselves an accountant. However to belong to the ICAEW, a member must complete a 3 year training contract with a firm authorised by the Institute and pass extensive examinations encompassing accounting, financial management, audit, business strategy, tax and IT.
ICAEW Chartered Accountants can be recognised by the ACA or FCA after their name.
As ICAEW Chartered accountants, we:
- are committed to Continued Professional Education every year, to keep our knowledge and training up to date;
- hold an ICAEW Practising Certificate and Professional Indemnity insurance;
- are subject to review by the ICAEW Practice Assurance scheme, which demonstrates our commitment to quality assurance, and upholding and developing the highest professional standards.
Why settle for something less in your accountant?
