Accountancy Age broke the news in July that the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Chartered Institute of Public Finance Accountants (CIPFA), and the ICAEW were in discussions over a merger of the three bodies.
The presidents and chief executives of the three institutes will make an announcement at a press conference next week Tuesday in the City.
A poll conducted by AccountancyAge.com in August found that members were split on the merger.
