When Accountancy Age revealed a couple of weeks ago that the CCAB, the profession’s umbrella body, was in danger of falling apart because of a spat between ICAS, the ICAEW and CIPFA, TS was initially unconcerned. After all, you would hope that grown men of such standing would be able to resolve their differences without too much fuss.
So it was a bit of a shock when we decided to visit the website of said body only to find it had disappeared. Just two lines of text currently constitute the CCAB’s site one its name and the other telling us the site is being ‘redeveloped’.
You have to wonder if this development is currently on hold until the malaise between the institutes is sorted out.
