ICAEW and Bloomsbury Publishing relaunch the Bloomsbury Accounting and Tax Service

Eligible ICAEW member firms have free access to ICAEW’s Bloomsbury Accounting and Tax Service, a market-leading research platform designed to provide up-to-date content and commentary to support the busy tax adviser or accountant in their client work. The content is written and updated by a range of practitioners, including some of the most well-known names in the industry. Our easy-to-use and fast online platform means you can search or browse quickly to find the answers you are looking for; no training is required.

We are committed to ensuring that we support you in your career and your practice. We have listened to your feedback on the Bloomsbury service, and are delighted to announce that we will be relaunching the service on 11 November 2022, with a number of improvements.

  • We’ve changed the Browse my Content menu to make it more intuitive, so you can find the content you’re looking for more easily.
  • We’ve made changes to the search functionality to ensure search picks up common misspellings and gets you more quickly and easily to the content you’re looking for.
  • We’ve introduced the option to request alerts for your saved searches, so that you will receive an email when the search finds new results, keeping you up to date on the topics most important to you.
  • We’ve introduced new support content, including FAQs, new videos on search and site functionality, and a page highlighting the most popular content on the site.
  • We’ve renamed the service the Bloomsbury Accounting and Tax Service, to make it easier for you to find it on the ICAEW website.

When you log in from 11 November, you will be taken to the new site. We hope you enjoy the site. If you have any feedback or need any support, please do get in touch.
