We have updated on our web-site the 3rd edition of ‘Key Facts and Trends in the Accountancy Profession’, which was published in February 2005. This includes statistical information on the six accountancy bodies which are members of the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies for the year ended 31st December 2004. The information on the major audit firms, which already reflects 2004 year ends, has not been changed. We are planning to publish a 4th edition in the second half of 2006, which will give 2005 data. This will be published both on the web and in hard copy. Please contact Tracy Neilson on 0207 492 2343 if you have any queries.
