Above are some of our members who have helped and supported our ACCA family.
Thank you from ACCA for all the great feedback you have sent – we have used this to support our ACCA family and have also used your great thoughts and insights when ‘discussing’ issues, concerns and changes with regulators and government.
When the Covid-19 situation unfolded, nobody really knew what we would be facing. But unprecedented circumstances have called for unprecedented responses, with every day bringing new practical challenges to face. The accounting profession is on the front-line helping clients and businesses to adapt and respond to the coronavirus crisis, while also having to adapt to different circumstances and ways of working themselves.
Over the past couple of months, it has been crucial for us to provide you all with timely, valuable and practical guidance. But we couldn’t do that alone. So, we want to say a huge thank you!
With ACCA as a platform to reach as many members as possible, you have without hesitation shared your personal journeys, given invaluable technical advice and provided much-needed feedback.
You have continued to generously give advice, share insights about policy issues and loan schemes, reveal your resumption plans and much more. This has been pivotal in shaping the support packages we have provided to all of our members.
We have had a huge amount of positive feedback about the support we have provided, but we must pass this on to you. As you have played a vital role in this.
'I just wanted to thank you and the team collectively for the Covid-19 information sent out overnight – which I have selectively circulated to clients and immediate feedback is very positive – so thank you all and well done!'
One member finding the resources ‘absolutely invaluable’, highlighting the speed with which she received the information and the practical nature. ‘It’s a fantastic resource and means you’re not necessarily going straight to the lawyers or spending hours yourself researching something.’
'I would like to say a big thanks for supporting and helping all the ACCA members during this Covid-19 crisis. Stay safe.'
In such an unsettling period, there’s been a huge wave of support, generosity and openness. We’ve had some brilliant responses from across all sectors and we’ve seen the ACCA family come together in many ways.
Your insights and experiences have also been instrumental in helping us give feedback to policymakers, including the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), HMRC and many others.
People will remember how you responded during this time. You could have remained fixed on your own agenda and refused to collaborate. But you haven’t.
So, thank you – from Glenn Collins, Lilly Aaron, Yogesh Dhanak, Lloyd Powell, Mirela Dewshi, Radha Garg, Pat Delbridge, Bhopinder Chouhan, Sam Clark, Chris-Dian Carter, Eve Bielawska, Kanchan Joshi John Duggan and all at ACCA UK
