Prior to making an application, we would encourage you to:
Once your application has been received, we will arrange an assessment, usually carried out by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). The ICAEW will produce a report which, along with your application, will be considered by the QAS Committee, which will determine whether or not to grant accreditation. The process usually takes approximately 4 months, depending on availability of the ICAEW and the timing of the quarterly QAS Committee meeting.
We have provided information below about the current members of the QAS, as well as case studies and information about the QAS sub-committee.
