Frequently asked questions

What is the ICAS Annual Admission Ceremony?

The ICAS Annual Admission Ceremony is an event where, as a new member, you are welcomed into membership, presented with your certificate, and will take the membership pledge along with your fellow new members.

The programme for the day will be confirmed closer to the date.

If you require your certificate before the event, please contact Central Registry.

Where will the event take place?

The Annual Admission Ceremony will be held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC).

When do I become a Chartered Accountant and use designation CA?

You will become a Chartered Accountant on the day you are admitted to membership. From that date, you can use the designation CA after your name for as long as you remain a member. Please don’t use the CA designation until you have become a member.

I have just passed my final exam – can I come to the ceremony?

You can only come to the ceremony if you have been admitted to membership before the day of the event. If you have just passed your TPE, you will have a few final things to do to be admitted to membership. You will not be able to apply for membership until your training contract has finished and your logbook has been signed off. If you would like to attend the ceremony, please ensure your logbook is submitted as soon as possible.

Help! My logbook is still awaiting approval.

If your logbook is awaiting approval, you can still book for the event. However, you will still need your logbook to be approved, and you will need to be admitted to membership before the event. If you are concerned that your logbook may not be approved before the final admission deadline, please contact the Education team.

My logbook has been approved – how do I become a member?

Once you have completed all your educational requirements, you should receive an email from the Education team with your application pack. Please complete the application form and send it to Central Registry. You can make payment for your admission fee and annual subscription over the phone by calling +44(0)131 347 0314 or you can request the bank details by emailing the Central Registry team.

If you have not received an application pack, please contact Education.

What is the deadline to make an application for membership?

To attend the ceremony, you must make an application for membership by 4 March 2016. You will not be able to attend the ceremony unless you have been admitted to membership prior to the event.

I have already received my certificate – what will happen at the ceremony?

If you have already received your certificate, you are welcome to attend the ceremony, where you will still receive a ceremonial tube.

I can’t come to the ceremony. Can I still take part?

If you will not be able to attend the ceremony, you can still get involved. You can watch your friends and colleagues receive their certificate from anywhere in the world as the ceremony will be streamed live online. You can also join in the celebration on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn with the hashtag #ICASclassof2016. To find out about these opportunities, please contact our Marketing team at

Can I bring more than three guests?

Unfortunately due to the size of the venue, we can only guarantee three free places for each newly admitted member. For those who want to invite more than three, we will randomly allocate extra tickets providing there is space in the venue. Guests will be contacted about this in due course. For more information, please contact the Member Engagement team.
