The Chartered Accountants' Company

STOP PRESS: We recently welcomed our new Master, former Lord Mayor, Sir Peter Estlin. Peter’s focus is on making the future as productive, sustainable and satisfying as possible and thus his theme for his year is “Fit for the Future”. The Livery and its friends across our profession and the wider City Civic, wish him and his charming wife, Lindy, every success with their year leading our Company.


The Company has four “pillars”, or principal aims:-

  • Business and professional: To promote the values and objectives of the profession, to nurture leadership and to influence the broader business debate;
  • Charitable: To give something back to society, to direct our efforts and funds to relevant sustainable causes and communities and to leverage the skills and experience of our Members;
  • City Civic: To contribute to the governance of the City of London Corporation, and to participate actively in the life of the City; and
  • Fellowship: To engage effectively with our Members, with the broader Livery movement and with our profession, whilst enjoying ourselves.

Within these we further prize, endorse and promote seven key values: integrity, friendship, leadership, giving back, trust, citizenship, and linking the past, present and future.

350

Our Royal Charter allows us to have 350 Liverymen and an unlimited number of Freemen. A Freeman may enjoy many of the privileges of membership, but may not vote at Guildhall or wear the Livery Uniform, until he or she becomes a Liveryman.

ICAEW Members are always welcome to contact the Clerk and discuss the possibility of joining us, initially as a Freeman.

Personal merit, a willingness to contribute in a collegiate environment and to donate to a range of good causes, and a pleasant personality are all we ask of applicants.
