Top Ten Benefits
The first and possibly the most important of all our benefits. Every practice will be provided with £300,000 PI cover on application. The cover provided is fully ICAEW and ICAS compliant and is fully retroactive to the date the practice started and has a low £500 excess. By making the policy ICAEW and ICAS compliant it guarantees compliance with all other Institutes such as AAT, CIMA etc.
The ICPA have teamed up with Bloomsbury Professional to give members unrestricted online access to Bloomsbury Professional’s Core Tax Service. This membership benefit will give you access to 15 key tax titles (worth over £980 if bought separately as hard copy books) and also makes available HMRC’s guidance notes and manuals. You can search across the whole range of books or by specific book, results can be downloaded, for incorporation in letters etc. or for research purposes. Got a tax question? Just look here first.
Members of the ICPA can benefit from a whopping 20% discount when using pensionsync’s renowned Direct Model. This service automates the delivery of data between payroll, AE middleware and pension providers. Due to the ICPA’s recent partnership with pensionsync, ICPA members can also gain 2 months’ free access when submitting their client’s data and a lifetimes free access if you choose to use pensionsync to submit your own company’s pension data.
We all understand that the costs of dealing with HMRC enquiries are high and when passed onto the client could easily result in the loss of said client. This is why the ICPA have joined forces with a CronerTaxwise and together we have developed the “Tax Enquiry Support Package" This scheme which is unique to the ICPA represents a major breakthrough in fee protection for small practices being based solely upon the number of your clients but the fee protection element is only a part of the overall package..
Sometimes no matter how much research you put into a subject no matter how sure you are of the answer if it relates say to your largest client doubts sometimes can be difficult to eliminate and you look to others to help. We recognise that our members often need access to profession help on an ad-hoc basis so we have secured free telephone helplines from Qdos Consulting that cover all the taxes in all the shapes and sizes, and employment law and legal issues.
