Have your say on ICAS Technical policies

By Michelle Crickett, ICAS Director of Research

31 August 2015

Michelle reports on the key policy themes currently being pursued by ICAS and is urging you to have your say.

We're keen to have your views on ICAS Technical Policy themes and positions.

The ICAS Technical Policy Board (TPB) works on behalf of  ICAS members and in the wider public interest to influence and develop policy, in the UK and globally, across a wide range of topics of relevance to members.

The work undertaken by the TPB and its underlying Technical Committees is a mixture of reactive and pro-active, from responding to a consultation document issued by the IASB, contributing to debates on international tax policy, pursuing regulatory change in Europe, issuing guidance for boards on KPIs, to publishing innovative thought leadership publications on the future of assurance.

But are you aware of the policy themes and positions that the TPB and the Technical Committees are currently pursuing on your behalf?  These themes and positions PDF [578 KB] are now publicly available and we would welcome any feedback or comment on these.

Please get in touch if you have views on:

  • The existing policy themes and positions;
  • Other policy themes and positions which you believe ICAS should pursue;
  • Suggestions of issues which are or will affect the profession and business, in the UK or internationally, either now or in the future,  which you believe should be considered by the TPB.

The TPB comprises senior ICAS members who voluntarily give up their time to ICAS to represent our diverse members' views and is supported by staff from the ICAS Technical Policy Team.
