ICAS 'won't rule out' joining merger talks

ICAS could yet join the three-way merger talks between the ICAEW, CIPFA and CIMA, it has emerged.

Ian Robertson, president of ICAS, was reported by The Herald as saying that the body had not ruled out joining the negotiations.

However, the Scottish Institute’s reaction to the talks, revealed by Accountancy Age last week, was reported to be ‘cool’.

‘My impression is that if we at ICAS said we’d like to come and chat, they would say ‘great’,’ he said.

‘We may well do that to get more information on what precisely they are talking about. But we certainly don’t know enough yet to make any sort of decision.’
