ICAS Practice reviews

General reviews

Our general reviews can focus on one particular issue or cover a number of areas depending on your needs. They can take the form of informal telephone consultations, or a visit to your firm to undertake a full review and formal report.

We can provide guidance on a number of areas including:

  • Compliance with Institute bye-laws, rules and guidance e.g. money laundering
  • Skills and competence e.g. recruitment, appraisals, training and IES 8
  • General management practices e.g. workflow arrangements
  • Analysis of specific work areas within the practice e.g. accounts preparation, taxation, projections, management accounts, payroll and book-keeping services
  • Preparation for a visit by the ICAS Quality Review team - highlighting areas where improvement is needed and advising on corrective action, or if you have recently been visited, reviewing, recommending and formulating an appropriate plan of action.
