Chartered Accountants Call For Volunteers

CAVA, the Chartered Accountants Voluntary Advice service, has today issued a call for more qualified chartered accountants in response to the growing demand for its service from recession-hit owner-managed businesses. Increasing its network of volunteers will enable CAVA to roll out its valued service in more locations across Ireland in 2011.

CAVA was established in 2008 by the Chartered Accountants Leinster Society and is run by Chartered Accountants in Ireland who offer their time and services free of charge to individuals who are not in a financial position to acquire these services elsewhere. This service was originally initiated with MABS, the Money and Budgeting Advice Service.According to Orla Fisher a Senior Manager of PricewaterhouseCoopers and a member of the Chartered Accountants Leinster Society committee who has been spearheading the CAVA initiative, there is significant demand in the country from people in need of advice and direction concerning business matters, particularly sole traders.

“MABS deals with a huge volume of personal and domestic queries; however, there was an urgent void in the market for people experiencing financial difficulty associated with business type queries, especially after the economic effects of 2008. Essentially there was no place for these people to turn to and in response, CAVA was established to assist these individuals,” said Ms Fisher
