No Name Change For ICAEW

In response to queries about the forthcoming rebranding exercise, an ICAEW spokesperson told CCH Daily:
'We can confirm we are updating our new brand, the first major brand refresh since 2005, and we will unveil it in April. We won’t be changing our name and will continue to be known as ICAEW.'
Would loyal readers care to reveal how much the rebranding will cost them (wrt letterheads, cards etc)?

ICAEW Making Tax Digital Resource Centre

Those of you who will end up having to cope with HMRC's half arsed MTD plans (that's all of us by the way!) may find the ICAEW's MTD resource centre a modest start.
"Making Tax Digital (MTD) is the most fundamental change to the administration of the UK tax system for a generation. The way in which businesses, landlords, individuals and tax agents interact with HMRC is being revolutionised. 

As we move from consultation to education and implementation, the latest guidance and analysis is available from ICAEW experts to support members and the wider public."
Good luck everyone!

ICAEW Brand Change In April

It seems that the ICAEW will be changing its brand and branding in April.

As per the ICAEW site:
"Our marketplace has changed considerably since ICAEW was first formed in 1880 – we now have global markets, digital communication and more competition than ever before. So we need a strong, distinctive brand to clearly position ourselves, differentiate ICAEW from competitors and support our future growth.

After a year researching our brand with key stakeholder groups, we have taken on board all their comments and feedback to produce a new brand that will ensure we remain modern and relevant to all our audiences. We believe that this new, revitalised brand will help us to:
  • be a leader in a world of strong economies
  • support our future strategic aims
  • take the ‘best of the old’ and point it to the future
  • unite the diversity of the institute
  • recognise the range of demands of all stakeholders.
The April edition of economia will feature the new brand and yes, you should notice the difference! We will be changing many of our materials straight away so any letters, emails or other communications you receive from April onwards will look different. So will this website.

You will be able to use the new member or firm logo on your own stationery and marketing materials (subject to membership regulations). You won’t have to make changes straight away; you can use the new logos from April but have until the end of 2018 to adopt the new identity."
The logo change in 2007 cost £65K, I wonder how much this has/will cost?

Well Done PwC!
