ICAS cools merger talk

No plans for the oldest accounting institute in the UK to pursue a merger with any other accounting bodies

ICAS, the oldest accounting institute in the UK, has said that it has no
plans to pursue a merger with any other accounting bodies.

Speaking on
Accountancy Age
TV
, ICAS president Isobel Sharp said that her institute was eager to work in
partnership with other accounting bodies but had no interest in formal
consolidation.

‘My members have said for a long, long time that they are not for it [a
merger] and we are not putting it on the table. The interesting thing is that I
don’t see any pressure from any of the other bodies to support consolidation or
mergers at this point in time,’ Sharp said.

ICAS has recently launched a new strategy that will see the institute focus
on its international reach and the value of its qualification.
