Originally dedicated to fighting the proposed merger of the ICAEW with CIMA and CIPFA, this site now provides news about the ICAEW

Do you think the ICAEW rebranding was money well spent?

The Most Influential Work in The History of Capitalism?

The BBC are of the view that double entry bookkeeping is the most influential work in the history of capitalism.

Have they not realised that there is in fact a triple entry system, devised by Yuji Ijiri?

More to the point, capitalism really sprang to life with the creation of limited companies.

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!

Seemingly they cost £15 online to buy.

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.

Logo Download Problems

On Monday I noted the following wrt the new ICAEW logo:
"Oh, and it seems, as yet, you can't actually access the logo to download it (you can just access the descriptions and images of it)." 
Having wasted an inordinate amount of time in messaging the ICAEW backwards and forwards about this, I am no closer to being able to find (let alone download) the black/red logo.

Hence I have given up, and asked the ICAEW to email it to me instead!

Happy ICAEW Logo Day - I Am An Accountant, Fear My Mighty Pincers!

Happy new ICAEW logo day everyone, as you will see in your inboxes this morning the ICAEW has now officially launched its new logo:
Our new brand is here!
After over a year of planning, ICAEW has a new look. We hope you like it.

This change will differentiate us in a global marketplace, ensuring that we stand out from the crowd. It also supports our vision of a world of strong economies − where people can trust data, leaders can make good decisions, public finances are transparent and businesses are accountable.  

We have a member and firm logo which you can use on your own stationery and marketing materials (subject to membership regulations). Using the ICAEW logo reminds people that you are a member and therefore have the knowledge and ethical standards that they would expect. It also links you to ICAEW, a respected, international organisation that supports you throughout your career.

You will find the new logo at icaew.com/logo, along with guidelines on how to use it.

Chief Operating Officer
The pincers are larger and more menacing, and to add to the confusion there are several versions (black and red, white and red or mono black).

Oh, and it seems, as yet, you can't actually access the logo to download it (you can just access the descriptions and images of it). 

Good luck!

Behold The New ICAEW Logo!

The new ICAEW logo officially goes live on 3rd April. However, it is already displayed on the ICAEW website homepage and twitter account. There is also a video on the ICAEW website about the re-branding, that features water.

The logo still features Economia (the Greek goddess of money), except this time her pincers look a tad more "assertive".

It will take the ICAEW several days to update there site pages etc; as such there will be a hiatus in newswires next week.

I dare say the membership of the ICAEW will have some admin to conduct as well, in order to update their websites, cards, stationary etc.
