As part of a wider initiative to support members with their lifelong learning, from January 2023 ICAEW’s membership will include access to the content of the Audit and Assurance Faculty, Financial Reporting Faculty and Tax Faculty, and all ICAEW Communities. ICAEW members will no longer need to pay an additional fee to access these groups and their content.
ICAEW is determined to ensure that members receive as much value as possible from their membership, as well as having the opportunity to stay up to date with the latest developments and requirements for the profession, says Iain Wright, ICAEW’s Managing Director, Reputation & Influence. “Professionals need information in real time, when their business or clients demand it. The removal of paywalls for areas such as Audit, Tax and Financial Reporting, as well as Communities, will give all members access to the valuable and rich content produced by these groups.”
Once logged into the ICAEW website, members will be able to access the content without paying extra. “We want to make it as easy as possible for members to find what they need, when they need it. However, we strongly recommend members take a moment to join the faculties and communities that are most relevant to them, their interests and their careers to get the full benefit of tailored communications and networking opportunities at no extra cost and discounted rates for certain events.
“Faculties and communities have been and will continue to be the lifeblood of our thought leadership and technical expertise, providing insights for members, governments and regulators that raise the reputation of our profession and improve the business environment for the economy,” says Wright.
The current subscription model will continue to operate for the Corporate Finance and Financial Services Faculties. Non-ICAEW members will also be charged in the normal way.
About time too!
