The institutes reiterated the benefits of ‘increased influenced’ and ‘expanded expertise’ for the integrated institute, which would contain 140,000 members with total revenues of £84m.

‘It is critically important that we convey to members the practical gains in terms of improved services and greater influence against the long-term implications and limitations of a decision to favour the status quo,’ said Eric Anstee, ICAEW chief executive. ‘ICAEW and CIPFA have clear complementary strengths’.

Earlier today, as reported on AccountancyAge.com, CIMA issued ‘specific principles’ that it said must be ‘applied’ to enable the institute to join the consolidation plans.
