Why use a CA
A Chartered Accountant can be invaluable, working with you as a trusted business partner. CAs are:
- Professionally qualified
- Required to undertake continuous professional development to keep up to date
- Bound by a code of ethics to adhere to the highest professional standards
CAs who work in a practice and offer services to the public are:
- Monitored by quality reviews of their professional practices
- Required to have professional indemnity insurance in place
- Required to have a complaints procedure in place
- Subject to disciplinary procedures by their membership body (ICAS)
This combination of comprehensive training, experience and rigorous process is critical to the high standards CAs offer their clients to manage their finances effectively.
