Deity business at ICAS
In TS’ opinion, institutes have always been held in high regard – usually by themselves – but a sharp little birdie revealed that ICAS got the ultimate thumbs up from one set of visitors. Apparently Chinese book balancers made a visit to the Edinburgh HQ a priority, describing it as ‘a holy place’.
As the world’s first professional body of accountants, which received its Royal Charter in 1854, ICAS deserves some credit, but does this mean the sick will arrive at the institute’s gates in hope of having their maladies cured? Will the blind be able to see and the crippled walk again?
