how is the global cost of living crisis impacting chartered accountants?
Brexit, the ongoing impact of the pandemic and the conflict in Ukraine are all extraordinary events that have led to a cost of living crisis. It’s unlike something many of us have experienced in our working lives.
This report uses research from ICAEW members to paint a picture of how the accountancy profession is affected by the cost of living crisis, both practically and emotionally.
At caba, we have pulled together a panel of experts to share their advice on navigating through this difficult and worrying period, including guidance on how to tackle debt, have difficult financial conversations at work and maintain positive mental health when dealing with circumstances outside of your control. This expert advice is supported by real life experience from Chartered Accountant, Tooba Siddiqui.

caba’s CEO, Dr Cristian Holmes, sets the scene for the report and explains why the cost of living crisis is an issue the accountancy profession needs to focus on. Tooba, a chartered accountant, also reminds us why it’s good to seek help when we need it.
