What is the CIMA Scheme?

We provide ADR for members of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and their customers. CIMA is the world’s largest and leading professional body of management accountants with more than 227,000 members and students in 179 countries.

We provide Conciliation services to help resolve your dispute. 

Conciliation is a private and structured form of negotiation assisted by a trained CEDR Accredited mediator. If a settlement is reached the mediator can draw up an agreement that can then become a legally binding contract if signed by both parties. This process is conducted by several means of communication including telephone, Skype or by email.

Companies covered

This Scheme is only available to CIMA Members in Practice (CIMA members who offer accountancy services directly to the public).
