Some helpful links in these troubled times

At this moment in time the ICPA is operating a remote working policy and the staff are beavering away as usual only working from home and not in the office.

As part of our remote working I’ve been taking my share of the ‘phone calls as well as handing specific emails.

8) What exactly did the Chancellor promise? Here you are:
