Benefits of becoming a Full Member

If you don’t have any other accountancy qualifications, full membership is the only way you can undertake IE at the higher level. (i.e. above £250,000 in England & Wales and Northern Ireland and the examination of accruals accounts in Scotland). Full membership is also be a demonstration of your commitment to upholding best practice. In the words of someone who recently achieved full membership:

“Compliance for the majority of charities under the audit threshold is really important and that means Independent Examination. Independent Examination is not just “audit light” but the best fit for these charities. As the partner in a firm specialising in the charity sector it is crucial that the appropriate compliance aspect is done well. I chose full membership of ACIE because it would demonstrate this commitment for myself and our charity team.”

Full members are registered on the ACIE website in the ‘Find an Examiner’ facility. Potential clients can contact you directly to discuss their requirements and fees.
