The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) has
withdrawn its membership from the Consultative
Committee of Accountancy Bodies (CCAB).

“CIMA’s agenda is to develop and support the
role of financially qualified business leaders who work in
organisations around the world. Therefore the CCAB, with its
emphasis on audit, has diminishing relevance for the institute”,
said CIMA governance and professional standards director Robin

CCAB members include the Institute of
Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, Institute of Chartered
Accountants of Scotland, Chartered Accountants Ireland, Association
of Chartered Certified Accountants and the Chartered Institute of
Public Finance and Accountancy.
