Beware of misdescribers

Each week ICAEW receives complaints - from ICAEW members and from members of the public - about individuals and organisations who describe themselves as ‘chartered accountant(s)’ or who use the letters ACA or FCA after their name when they are not entitled to.

When we receive these complaints, we take steps to make sure that the individual or organisation stops using the description ‘chartered accountant’ or the letters ACA or FCA. ICAEW takes these cases very seriously because members of the public can be misled into thinking that the individual is a qualified chartered accountant or, in the case of a former ICAEW member, that they are still entitled to describe himself/herself as a chartered accountant.

This page lists firms and individuals who have been brought to our attention in the last three years.

If you would like to discuss any issues relating to infringement or misdescribers please contact a member of the IP team on intellectualpropertyteam@icaew.com
