Tips for Choosing an Accountant

Legally anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ without any training or experience.

To make the right financial decisions, you need the right financial advice. An ICAEW Chartered
Accountant can help. ICAEW Chartered Accountants
can be recognised by the ACA or FCA after their name.

  • Qualified chartered accountants must complete a minimum of three years in-depth training
    including practical experience

  • Members of ICAEW – The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales
  • Bound by ICAEW’s Code of Ethics and subject to their disciplinary procedures
