Ayr-based Sinclair Scott has become only the second firm of Chartered Accountants in the whole of Ayrshire to be officially authorised by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) as an Authorised Training Office (ATO).
ATO authorisation will allow Sinclair Scott to train students to gain the CA qualification.
Sinclair Scott partner Stephen Wilkie commented: “We have already taken on a CA student, Lucy Hunter, 24, from a Glasgow firm, and if she passes her exams she will be a qualified CA this time next year.
“We were very keen to gain ATO authorisation and to be able to take on CA students like Lucy, as we feel they will provide excellent support for our other qualified staff.
“We already have 5 qualified CAs and 3 other qualified managers.”
