Why should I choose and ACIE member as my IE?

Choosing an ACIE member gives you the reassurance of working with someone who:

  • Is part of national network, with access to regular updates on practice and the backing of our technical helpline;
  • Has access to our ‘IE File” - a step by step guide to carrying out an examination
  • Has demonstrated a commitment to good practice by joining ACIE;
  • In the case of Associates and Fellows, someone who has had their work scrutinised and validated by ACIE;
  • Is encouraged to maintain their professional development by accessing our training events and national conferences. From 2019, CPD will be compulsory for full members.
  • Can ensure that your funders and supporters can be presented with accounts that have been professionally examined.

We also recognise that being a good independent examiner requires a good understanding of the charity sector in general and that is why our training events and conferences cover a wide range of issues such as tax and gift aid, anti-money laundering, managing reserves and reporting to the Regulator; an ACIE examiner can offer more  than just scrutiny of accounts, they can offer charities advice and information to do things better.
