The Chartered title is an internationally recognised professional designation indicating the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct, up-to-date technical expertise and the capabilities of a qualified professional. ICAEW Chartered Accountants can be recognised by the ACA or FCA after their name.


They are taught to listen and question, to ensure that the decisions and recommendations they make are of the highest standard. Their high-quality advice, sound judgment and insight into the issues affecting your finances are second to none.


They have in-depth knowledge and technical expertise gained from rigorous academic training, and the ability to apply it to all financial situations. This gives them an independent perspective you can trust.


Above all, they are bound by a code of ethics ensuring their professionalism and responsibility to their clients. No matter how big or small your financial query, you can rely on an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.

  • Have completed a minimum of three years’ in-depth training, including practical experience.

  • Are members of ICAEW – The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

  •  Are committed to continuing professional development training every year to keep their knowledge and skills up to date.

ICAEW's Code of Ethics (the Code) sets out five fundamental principles, which guide members’ behaviour:

  • Integrity

  • Objectivity

  • Professional competence and due care

  • Confidentiality

  • Professional behaviour


ICAEW is committed to enforcing the Code through disciplining members who do not meet reasonable ethical and professional expectations of the public and other members. ICAEW assesses all complaints to determine if they constitute a disciplinary matter. Failure to follow the Code may result in a member becoming liable to disciplinary action.


(ICAEW regularly receives complaints - from ICAEW members and from members of the public - about individuals and organisations who describe themselves as 'Chartered Accountant(s)' or who use the letters ACA or FCA after their name when they are not entitled to.  Always check their credentials carefully).
