The ICAEW Business Advice Service (BAS) connects entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small and medium-sized businesses with ICAEW regulated accountancy firms who will provide a free initial consultation without obligation.

Why choose a BAS firm

Did you know that anyone can provide accountancy and taxation services, regardless of whether they have specialist experience, technical skills, qualifications or professional indemnity insurance?

Now more than ever, businesses need sound professional advice to ensure they are optimally financed and structured to take advantage of government’s support programmes, and to emerge from the current challenges able to thrive and grow in the future.  So if you’re thinking of using the services of an accountant, always look for someone who has a professional qualification, and check what qualifications and experience they have. Appointing an ICAEW-regulated firm will ensure you are taking advice from someone who is qualified, committed and accountable.

ICAEW has played a leading role in the accountancy profession for more than a century and works to protect the public interest by making sure its firms, members, students and affiliates maintain the highest standards of professional competency and conduct.

ICAEW Chartered Accountants advise over 3m businesses, helping them achieve their financial and strategic goals and driving their economic growth.
