Membership Benefits

How joining SPA makes your voice heard

  • SPA was established in response to concerns about the effectiveness of ICAEW’s support for Small Practitioners.
  • SPA represents some 1000 small practitioners throughout the country.
  • We provide a collective voice on ICAEW issues that directly affect our practising environment.
  • We respond to HMRC Consultations and Initiatives that directly concern those in small practice.
  • Three SPA members sit on the ICAEW Council, and our Treasurer plus three other SPA members sit on the ICAEW Practice Committee.
  • We also seek your input and views on topical issues via our email surveys.

Benefits of Membership

 We have negotiated economic rates for our membership schemes, namely:

  • A Group PII Scheme with free Tax, Legal and Technical helplines.
  • A Private Medical Insurance Scheme.
  • A Fee Protection Insurance Scheme to cover HMRC enquiry fees.

Also available:

  • Legal advice and representation on disciplinary matters for issues that post-date your membership (to a capped level).
  • Access to members providing assistance in specialist accountancy areas.
  • Pension specialist to assist with your pension needs.

AGM/Social Event

Members are invited to attend SPA’s AGM and CPD session followed by a social event which is held in May each year.  This is an opportunity to meet up with other fellow practitioners in a relaxed atmosphere.
