Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

About NorSCA

The Northern Society of Chartered Accountants (NorSCA) is a membership body for circa 4,000 ICAEW Chartered Accountants and ACA students who work across business & the finance profession in the North East, Teesside, Northern Yorkshire and Cumbria.

We were established in 1882 and we have been at the heart of northern business and producing ICAEW Chartered Accountants for over 140 years.


We are one of the 22 ICAEW District Societies in the United Kingdom and we cover one of the largest geographical area of all district societies with members working across the north of England from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Loftus on the north east coast; and across Northern Yorkshire and Cumbria including Middlesbrough, Northallerton, Richmond, Hawes, Tebay, Millom, St Bees and Longtown.

Today our ICAEW members work across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Our members in business undertake a diverse number of roles and work as board level Chief Executive Officers, Finance Directors and key contributors to finance teams across a wide range of local, PLC and international companies.

Our members in practice work in a wide range of accountancy firms providing audit & assurance, accountancy, taxation, corporate finance and insolvency services to businesses across the north of England and beyond. Our practice members include staff in the local offices of the global Big Four firms as well as a wide range of regional firms who provide services for their local clients.
