Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales

ICAEW Britain’s main professional accounting and external auditing organization. The ICAEW was incorporated by royal charter in 1880 by combining pre-existing regional English accounting institutes. Headquartered in London, it is the United Kingdom’s most important *Recognised Qualifying Body for external auditors. Its publications include a number of journals, magazines, and newsletters, such as * Accountancy, *Accounting and Business Research, *Audit News, *Internal Control, and *True and Fair. Its Web site describes its main activities as the "education and training of students, continuing professional development for members, maintenance of professional and ethical standards, cutting-edge work on technical accounting issues, and provision of advice and services to members." ICAEW members are known as *chartered accountants and are allowed the designatory letters ACA or FCA. The latter represents fellowship and is determined by seniority. ICAEW membership in 2003 was approximately 135,000, including 9,000 students and 15,000 members based outside the United Kingdom. Further reading: Habgood (1994); Matthews et al.
