About us

The South Essex Society of Chartered Accountants was formed as a Branch of the London Society in 1968. It became a District Society in 1974. It covers the following area:

  • County of Essex (excluding the Districts of Braintree, Colchester, Tendring and Uttlesford.)
  • London Boroughs of Barking, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest.

The society runs a comprehensive programme of continuing professional development courses, which are complimented by those run by its three town groups, Highams Park, Southend-on-Sea and South West Essex. A business awards dinner, charity ball and other social events are also included in our programme of events for local members.

South Essex Town Groups

There are three active Town Groups within the Society's area:

Highams Park

This group meets on the penultimate Wednesday of each month, except January.

Technical CD ROMs from Lexis Nexis are watched and the group then discuss issues from the CD ROMs and from their own practices.

New members are always welcome.

Southend (SOSCAG)
