Institutes of Chartered Accountants en Angleterre et au Pays de Galles
The Incorporated Society of Liverpool Accountants, The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) wurde 1880 durch königliche Charter gegründet. ICAEW had 8,256 pupils in 2015 - the highest ever. Of the FTSE 100 (the UK's top companies), 80 have an ICAEW Chartered Accountant on their boards. It is a member of the Advisory Committee of Accounting Associations (CCAB) set up in 1974 by the main accounting trade associations in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Part of the fragmentation of the audit function in the United Kingdom is due to the fact that there is no statutory obligation for an auditor to be a member of one of the many institutions as the concept of auditor has no judicial remedy. An individual must, however, be a member of the ICAEW, ISAS or CAI in order to be identified as a Chartered Public Accountant in the United Kingdom (although there are other approved entities of UK Chartered Certified Public Accountants whose members are also entitled to carry out limited work such as auditing).
Up to the middle of the 19th to the 19th centuries, the roles of the accountant in England and Wales were confined to those of the accountant, as the accountant merely kept a record of what other businessmen had bought and bought. But with the expansion of the private Limited Companies and the large-scale production and logistics in the UK, there has been a need for more technical accounts to cope with the growing complexities of bookkeeping operations involving asset write-offs, asset valuations and the introduction of corporate law.
Founded in November 1870, the Institute of Accountants in London had 37 members and was headed by William Quilter. During 1871, members set a standard for affiliation, with new members required to demonstrate skills by successfully completing an orals test. Originally the London Institute was limited to this town, but as other institutions were set up elsewhere (e.g. in Manchester and Sheffield), it was agreed to lift this limitation, and so in 1872 it came to be known as the Institute of Accountants just to take account of its new domestic cover; in 2005 the ICAEW tried to combine with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA).
At the same stage the Institute also made it known that it was considering removing the references to England and Wales in its Institute of Chartered Accountants status. Nonetheless, this scheme was abandoned even after protests by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland. In 2007, the Institute launched a new curriculum.
In order to be accepted into the ICAEW, candidates must normally have 450 working day pertinent professional practice (training) and take a range of exams. Member of similar institutions in other European Economic Area and Swiss member states may also be accepted after having passed the qualifying examination if they are citizens of an EEA state or Switzerland.
Institute has reciprocal agreement with: As of January 8, 2010, ICAEW has implemented a new program "Pathways to Membership" in which it provides the members of the following financial reporting institutions with the CCA term as soon as they have passed their audit of experience and sponsoring by an ICAEW member or within ICAEW's ATE education framework (qualified by standard audit and education path):
Nevertheless, ICAEW members joining the Pathways to Membership Programme of ICAEW must retain their home organisation memberships of ICAEW and ICAEW MIC members. It has 25 districts, the biggest of which is the London Society of Chartered Accountants (LSCA) with over 31,000 members.
