ICPA membership

Didn't find your answer?

Thinking to get ICPA subcription, is it worth investing ie for support like any complex questions I may have on tax etc?

I never used it for that, but the online access to the textbooks, cheap PII cover , AMLCC software access and some CPD seemed to make it reasonable value for money.

I even asked if I could continue as a member not in practice but was advised not possible, as the up to date tax etc publications were alone worth circa £350 or more a year.

Here are the benefits .

Bizarre! You’d have thought they’d be more than happy to take the money!

Thank you,I am more interested in marketing materials such as articles , technical support etc . Infact my post should have said "ICPA or 2020Innovation membership" . The later one provides marketing videos etc etc.

We are members of both, feel we get better value from the 2020 stuff, but it is about twice the price.

Are they an alternative MLR ticket to HMRC for some practitioners?

I've sometimes wondered, not least because as DJKL mentions their literature is quite good. Their website implies, but stops short of proclaiming, a fully fledged practising certificate in the offing. My gut feeling says probably not so.

No, but I think they can deal with sorting you compatible PII if you are say a member of ICAEW, the sub does include a certain level of PII (more than I needed given my limited fees, only being PT in practice)

My MLR was via HMRC.
