Here We Go Again!

It seems, that if reports in Accountancy Age are to be believed, Eric Anstee is preparing to make yet another merger attempt with CIPFA before the end of 2007.

It also seems, from the quote in the Accountancy Age article, that he wants to "service all the members".

One very literal interpretation of the word "service" is "f**k", I wonder if he is trying to tell us something?

Views anyone?


  1. It is better for us to merge with CIPFA than IFA/AAT

  2. No it is not. The IFA has something to offer to the ICAEW.

    The IFA's sister body the International Association of Book-Keepers would be the ideal vehicle for the ICAEW to get a toehold overseas in areas like China, India and Eastern Europe.

    However, we have to ensure that members of the IFA do not become ACA/FCA.

  3. Why do the ICAEW want to expand overseas in India, China, etc.

    They should first seek to become the leading accountancy body in the UK.
