CCAB Member Bodies

CCAB Values

All the CCAB bodies are obligated, by their Royal Charters, to work in the public interest and choose to collaborate through CCAB on a number of issues.

Presently, the focus of this collaboration is in two specific areas: tackling economic crime and promoting the value of the contribution of the accountancy profession to the UK economy where we publish guidance and discussion papers.

Choosing an Accountant
or Tax adviser

It is important to choose your accountant or tax adviser carefully.
Here are a few tips to help you.

If you have not used an adviser before you should be aware that anyone can call themselves an accountant/tax adviser whether or not they are professionally qualified.

There are some non-qualified advisers who may have the experience to help you but qualified accountants/ tax advisers have completed relevant qualifications and will be regulated by their professional body.
