Accountants

Whether you’re an accountant with a Limited Licence, a licensee with an accounting division, or an organisation that supports accountants, we have a range of ‘off the shelf’ solutions, or can tailor something to meet your needs.

For the last 20 years, we have been assisting the professional accounting bodies with guidance and resources for their members.  In November 2019, we acquired the consultancy business – Licensing for Accountants, allowing us to expand the services and support we provide licensed accountants.

We have developed industry guides for the major professional accounting bodies and developed a suite of unlicensed accountant support materials for both the professional bodies, and other organisations that provide support to the accounting industry.

How we can help

  • Customised SOAs for accountants, including those operating under a Limited Licence as well as those with reduced authorities
  • Guidelines, tools and policies for licensed accountants, and integrated practices
  • Consulting workshops for integrated practices
  • Resources and guides for unlicensed accountants
