A Hippocratic Oath for Accountants!

A totally bollocks and pointless idea.

Avoidance is not illegal, and accountants aren't doctors!

The ICAEW Marshmallow Pack - The ICAEW Wasting Members' Money!

Did anyone receive a pack of ICAEW rebranding marshmallows?

This seems a colossal waste of our money!

Oh, and I am still waiting for the ICAEW to email me the logo (as I cannot find it or download it from their brand page!).

I am running a poll about the rebranding, please feel free to complete it at the top of the page.
