Why choose a Chartered Accountant?


Legally anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ – they don’t need any qualifications, training or experience.

ICAEW Chartered Accountants are financial experts with the knowledge, initiative and judgement you can trust.

What does ‘chartered’ mean?

The chartered title is an internationally-recognised professional designation which can be used by qualified professionals including accountants, engineers and surveyors. It demonstrates the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct, up-to-date technical expertise and capability of a qualified professional.

How can they help?

Whether you need guidance on your personal finances, or detailed financial advice about your business, an ICAEW Chartered Accountant can help.

ICAEW Chartered Accountants listen and question, ensuring that the recommendations they make are of the highest standard. Their high quality advice, sound judgement and insight into your finances are second to none.

They have in-depth knowledge and technical expertise gained from rigorous academic training, and the ability to apply it to all financial situations. Above all, they are bound by a Code of Ethics which ensures their professionalism and responsibility to their clients.
