Important Change Regarding CCH Products Written by SWAT UK

We have been proudly responsible for writing and updating many publications on behalf of Wolters Kluwer(CCH) for almost 15 years and for ABG and Accountancy Books before that.

CCH have decided to carry out this work in-house and with effect from the 14th April 2017, SWAT UK are no longer responsible for writing any publications for CCH. This includes the PCAS and Kestrian audit systems and all related manuals and checklists as listed below.

This does not in any way affect your firm’s choice of audit system or the relationship we currently enjoy with you. It also will NOT affect in any way the file review services and training we are able to offer. Our file reviewers and trainers will remain well versed in CCH audit methodologies (whether within software, such as ProAudit or CaseWare, in Word or Excel or on paper), as well as all other packages with which we already work.

What will our publications team be working on?

As you know, we have a very talented publications team and we will not be letting those talents go to waste!

Andy Holton (Divisional Director – Publications) and his team will be:

a) Developing and upgrading SWAT UK's suite of publications including the ever popular Practice Assurance Manual.

b) Working with our sister company “Mercia Group” to develop and expand their publications; including their suite of audit and ‘Specialist Assignment Manuals’ (including charities, academies and pensions, to name a few), all of which will also be made available to SWAT UK clients.

If you would like to be kept up to date with the exciting developments from our publications team, please email info@swat.co.uk.
