A year in review and plans for the future were raised at this year's 2020 virtual annual general meeting of the South Wales Society.
ICAEW Chartered Accountants South Wales
Welcome to the home page for the South Wales Society of Chartered Accountants. Formed in 1913, we serve about 2,300 members throughout South Wales. The society’s members come from accountancy practices small and large and from a range of business, public sector and Third Sector interests. The district society is deeply engaged in the development of the local economy and regards the promotion of the profession – especially among students – as a crucial part of its work.
Demand for the skills that ICAEW chartered accountants bring to businesses is continuing to increase across the UK. To help meet these demands, we have collaborated with key stakeholders in the West Wales region, to increase access to quality training.
In the UK, 11.9% of the male adult population is currently engaged in entrepreneurial activity, compared with 5.6% of women. Here in Wales, the proportion of women owned businesses stands at 28%.
In a survey undertaken by the University of South Wales (USW) one of the most valued support for women either starting or sustaining their business is access to business mentors as experienced and informal sources of guidance in addition to business advisors.
