CA daily briefing: Thursday 21 November 2019
Your essential briefing of the morning's top news stories.
Good morning, Hilde Oesterkloeft here with your daily briefing of news from ICAS and around the globe.
Spotlight on ICAS
Alistair Connal and Bradley Delamare – both recognised in the ICAS Top 100 CAs list this year – have fully embraced technology, leaving behind a typical accountancy role. Their CA qualification has, however, provided a strong foundation for their success. Here they share their thoughts on the future of the accountancy profession and what this means for CAs.
Ann Buttery reports on the change to the definition of Safeguards within the ICAS Code of Ethics, which takes effect from 1 January 2020.
The IFS Green Budget gives an independent view of the UK economy, and Donald Drysdale finds that it provides a useful perspective on various economic and fiscal options.
