Technical Advisory Committee


National TAC is one of ICAEW’s oldest and largest committees.

It functions as a forum for collecting the views of a wide variety of ICAEW members from different roles and locations around the UK on technical consultations of particular significance to members.

There is a national TAC as well as a network of District TACs. Members wishing to keep up to date with the latest proposals ICAEW is responding to can find the current list on our consultations and representations pages.

Join us

National TAC meets around five times per year in London to discuss the latest proposals for new standards or regulations. Members can join meetings via video-conference. The committee covers a variety of technical accounting issues; financial reporting and audit tend to predominate, but tax and other areas such as ethics are also considered where there are proposals of general interest.

We would like to hear from members who are interested in joining the committee. Specific technical knowledge is not a prerequisite. Members should have an interest in financial reporting or audit, as well as other general issues affecting the profession, or in learning more about these areas. We welcome members from practice, business and the academic community and from the full spectrum of entities from the smallest to the largest.
