Royal Charter[edit]

How is the ICAEW the largest European accountancy body with Royal Charter when the ACCA is British based, larger, and also has Royal Charter? And why is it important to have Royal Charter - most countries don't even have monarchies any more! Matthew 20:00, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

I agree and I am taking out the 'world records with Royal Charter' since there isnt much compettion. Abtract 23:03, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
In the United Kingdom a Royal Charter signifies that a professional body is recognised by the academic and professional community. Psnae 03:13, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Uncited claims[edit]

I have remove the uncited claims about biggest and best at the beginning of the article. If anyone can include citations then of course they can be put back in but they look too much like trumpet blowing for an encyclopedia. Abtract 06:11, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

unclear[edit]

I am totally unclear about the relationship between these different bodies. Which has more prestige socially? which are regarded as higher ranking professionally? which has higher education or practice requirements? What is the historical relationship between them? What are or have been the conflicts between them? This is all basic information and is necessary for even minimal comprehension. Attention from an expert is clearly needed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DGG (talkcontribs) Latest revision as of 19:22, 3 May 2011

Good suggestion, David. However, it would be hard to write a WP:NPOV account of these aspects. The same goes for rival bodies in many other professions and jurisdictions, of course. Let's look out for reliable sources on the subject. - Fayenatic (talk) 09:38, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
Accountancy Age, a UK trade paper independent of all these bodies, is a good place to look and has an appropriate category: http://www.accountancyage.com/category/institutes - Fayenatic (talk) 11:27, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Suggested rename to Accounting in the United Kingdom[edit]

I propose that this article should be renamed from British qualified accountants to Accounting in the United Kingdom, then repurposed and expanded accordingly. A couple of Asian countries so far have an "Accounting in..." article, and there is scope to build a set, along the lines of the national law articles linked by Template:Law in Europe. Some stubs on national institutes could helpfully be merged or moved to start such articles, e.g. OTOC which already distinguishes the OTOC from the other accounting body for Portugal. - Fayenatic (talk) 13:39, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Sorry for posting this in talk, which isn't strictly the best place for this, but anyway...to all the people who have created, updated and filled this page with useful content - thank you, I really appreciate it. I'm considering training courses (and providers) towards becoming an accountant, and this page and other pages linked with this page have put me on the right track to finding all the information I need within a couple of hours. Accountancy-minded Wikipedians have saved me a lot of time and hassle! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.155.231.248 (talk) 22:12, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
