Can CABA pay for my ICAEW membership fees?

For ICAEW members struggling to pay their subscriptions, we're able to offer financial assistance (means tested based on household income). Whatever your situation, we're always here to offer advice to help you manage your finances.

Can CABA provide me with legal advice?

If you have a question about your legal rights or want to get advice on a legal situation, CABA can provide ACA students, past and present ICAEW members, past and present ICAEW staff and their families with access to free telephone legal advice provided by LawExpress (English and Welsh law). If you're based outside of the UK, CABA can provide access to telephone legal advice in parts of Europe and in Australia. Please contact us for further details.

To access this telephone legal advice contact us. When you get in touch one of our team will ask you what area of law you would like help with and will arrange for you to speak to an experienced adviser from LawExpress over the telephone in as little as 2 hours.

If you would rather not speak to someone over the telephone, you can also access free online legal information covering a wide range of topics using our legal factsheets provided by LawExpress. CABA doesn't provide financial support towards legal costs and cannot represent people legally.

Does CABA help with debt repayments?

CABA can’t fund debt repayments, however, we do provide debt advice and we can help you to understand your situation and explore options for you to help manage your debt. We can also help negotiate with creditors over repayments and support you, if required, in some basic legal proceedings. You may still wish to have legal representation.
