New ICAEW president unveils Business Advice Service

Clive Parritt launches free consultation at inaugural president's lunch

A NATIONWIDE Business Advice Service will be launched by the ICAEW, its new president Clive Parritt announced at his inaugural lunch yesterday.

Parritt, who serves in a number of non-executive roles, said that the institute lies “at the heart” of business success.

“We understand business because we’re in business. We understand the downturn because we’ve felt it too,” said Parritt.

The service will roll out nationwide later in 2011, entitling small and medium-sized enterprises to a free initial consultation with an ICAEW chartered accountant.

Parritt trained and worked in an SME before joining Touche Ross, now Deloitte. In 1982 he joined Baker Tilly, becoming national managing partner in 1986 and then chairman from 1996 until 2001.

Mark Spofforth was elected deputy president and Martyn Jones vice-president.
