Would the real ICA please stand up?

There are no signs of a swift resolution to the ongoing row over the name of the new super institute. To recap: the ICAEW and CIPFA plan to merge and want to call the merged body ‘The Institute of Chartered Accountants’. 

As a former England football manager might say ­ does ICAS (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) not like that. Negotiations, our more informed colleagues tell TS, are continuing. So we were surprised on calling ICAS this week to hear a jolly receptionist intone ‘The Institute of Chartered Accountants’. 

What’s that corporate maxim about if you really want to know what’s going on, then ask the receptionist?
