About us

Formed in 1906 as the Leeds and District Society of Chartered Accountants, in 1934 it became the Leeds, Bradford and District Society, adopting its present title in 1976. The Society's badge incorporates the White Rose of York. WYSCA is the sixth oldest of the District Societies and the first to be formed in the twentieth century. It covers West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire less the Districts of Richmondshire and Scarborough, and that part of the District of Hambleton which is south of Thirsk

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.

It also acts as a link between ICAEW in Moorgate Place and members in the district.

Young Chartered Accountants’ Network (YCAN) of West Yorkshire

As part of the ICAEWs commitment to maintaining excellent links with its members throughout their career WYSCA created YCAN.

YCAN has been designed to look after the interests of the ICAEWs younger qualified Chartered Accountants and to bridge the gap between the existing student societies and senior societies in West Yorkshire.

Any ICAEW member of WYSCA is automatically a member of YCAN for the first ten years after qualification.

The primary aims of YCAN are:

  • To become a recognisable social and networking group for Chartered Accountants in the West Yorkshire Business Community;
  • Provide ICAEW members with an extended business network by inviting local professionals eg bankers and solicitors, to events; and
  • Improve members’ soft skills.
