ICAS is a professional body for world class business men and women who work in the UK and around the world. Our members achieve the internationally recognised and respected CA qualification. We are an educator, examiner, regulator, and thought leader.

This is an exciting time for ICAS. With our ambitious new growth strategy, we are innovating for the future, providing the help and connections our members need to succeed, being a ‘big voice’ for the profession, and delivering consistently excellent services for our customers.

Underpinning these ambitions is our new purpose – Learn, grow and advance together. We’ve focused on and redefined who we are and what we do. We’re ready to meet the challenges, needs and opportunities tomorrow brings, for our members and with our members.

Education is at the core of ICAS. Our students are striving to become the next generation of CAs under the tutelage of our expert staff and members. In a fast-changing business environment – with the growing influence of artificial intelligence and data analytics – we are ensuring the content of the CA syllabus remains relevant.
