Dewe Rogerson designed the literature for the proposed merger of three rival accountancy bodies, announced last week.

The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants has called for a merger with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.

A decision on the proposal is expected in September. However, the merged organisation would not be up and running until 2000.

No thought has yet been given to a new name and identity, according to an ACCA spokeswoman, though the body would “probably go out to tender” for a design consultancy, she adds.

The body would have 120 000 members in 130 countries.
