As the professional body for consultants, business advisors and consultancy firms in the UK we represent the greatest number of professionals in the field.

As the use of consultants becomes more widespread so, in turn, do the risks buyers are faced with.  The National Consultants' Register aims to take the hard work and risk out of consultancy procurement, by providing easy access to UK's best consultants and business advisors. IC members have their applications rigorously checked so we can ensure they have the breadth of experience, qualifications and skills that make them the best in their field, and in doing so we recommend them to prospective clients both here in the UK and abroad.
