Why use a Chartered Accountant?
Legally anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ – without any qualifications, training or experience. 
In contrast, ICAEW Chartered Accountants, are financial experts with the knowledge, initiative and judgement you can trust.

The chartered title is an internationally recognised professional designation and demonstrates the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct and up-to-date technical expertise. ‘Chartered’ can be used by qualified professionals including accountants, engineers and surveyors. 
We are chartered accountants and we are: 
  • qualified chartered accountants who have completed a minimum of three years in-depth training including practical experience
  • committed to continuing professional development training every year to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date
  • members of ICAEW – The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales

  • bound by the ICEAW's Code of Ethics and subject to the ICEAW's disciplinary procedures 

  • required to hold a practising certificate and professional indemnity insurance as we offer professional services to the public 

  • subject to review as part of ICEAW's Practice Assurance scheme, which demonstrates our commitment to quality assurance, and upholding and developing the highest professional standards.
