Please plan ahead: regulatory applications and firm structure changes
ICAEW is implementing a new records management system this spring. As the new system goes live, there may be some disruption to our usual processing times, particularly during March and April. If you or your firm is considering a new regulatory application or change (eg, to the structure of your firm or to your own registration record), please contact our regulatory support team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at the earliest opportunity.
Please remember, you must notify us of any changes to the structure of your firm within 10 business days of the change. More information about maintaining your firm’s record is available here.

All Too Familiar: we have launched our new training film
UK-based ICAEW supervised firms and insolvency practitioners have been emailed a link to stream All Too Familiar. Please check with your ICAEW regulatory point of contact to access this new resource. All Too Familiar is provided as a free training tool to our firms and insolvency practitioners along with additional resources and learning materials.
All Too Familiar, examines the role of professional scepticism in the fight against economic crime. Produced in collaboration with HMRC, the film looks at a real-life scenario of how firms and individuals may inadvertently become ‘professional enablers’ for criminals involved in everything from financial fraud to modern slavery and terrorism. Global licences to use All Too Familiar outside the UK will be available later in the year.
