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?

Friday, January 21, 2005


The big eight European countries are considering proposals to harmonise their national accountancy qualifications.

This would create a common core of content, which would enable greater freedom of movement for qualified accountants across borders.

Accountancy Age lists the following countries and institutes as participating in the project:

-France, Ordre des Experts-Comptables (OEC)
-Germany, Institut der Wirtschaftsprfer (IDW) and Wirtschaftsprferkammer (WPK)
-Ireland, Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland (ICAI)
-Italy, Consiglio Nazionale dei Dottori Commercialisti (CNDC)
-The Netherlands, Koninklijk Nederlands Instituut van Registeraccountants (NIVRA)
-England, Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW)
-Scotland, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS)

This harmonisation process further undermines the logic of the "backward" step of merging with CIMA and CIPFA.
