The words 'ICAEW INSIGHTS' and the ICAEW logo on a blue background

The ICAEW Insights podcast explores the month’s top stories in accountancy.

In this ICAEW Insights episode, we discuss Labour’s proposals for removing VAT exemptions from private schools and the disagreement over just how much money it would raise for the public purse. Plus, in our final CPD update before the new regulations come into force on 1 November, we answer ICAEW members’ most frequently asked questions. 

Philippa Lamb is joined by ICAEW’s Ed Saltmarsh, Technical Manager, and Liz Shaw, Senior Manager, Professional Standards.
