ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Some firms have principals who are members of other professional accountancy bodies who also have similar schemes to ACCA Quality Checked.

To avoid these firms being burdened with general practice quality assurance visits from more than one professional body, ACCA has reciprocal agreements in place with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland (ICAS).

Firms that have recently been visited by the one professional body will not be visited by another provided that they supply a copy of the report on the visit to the other body.

ACCA firms visited by ICAS or ICAEW will be exempt from an ACCA Quality Checked visit but will not be eligible for the award of ACCA Quality Checked.
