Can some explain the difference between these two bodies and the exams. I know one is based in England and Wales and the other Scotland.
I was wondering why the Big 4 choose different bodies? For example KPMG only goes for ICAS.
On the KPMG website it says the following
" In our programme, you’ll be studying for a joint “ICAS” (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) and “CIOT” (Chartered Institute of Taxation) qualification. "
So im assuming it def does not do ICAEW.
Im applying for a London role not one in Scotland so i just feel a bit confused as to what the difference is between them if anything at all.
Also doesnt Scotland have its own tax system? It has its own parliament at least.
