CIPFA publications

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic CIPFA continues to support the public sector with help and guidance via its expert publications.

While we are no longer taking hard copy orders during the current pandemic, all of our current and much of our back catalogue is available online, in easy-to-read HTML and PDF formats. These online versions also include basic search and bookmarking features and are available for all in your department or organisation.

For those who have purchased a hard copy of our titles but have not yet received them – including the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting in the United Kingdom 2020/21 and associated Guidance Notes for 2019/20 – digital versions are available.

As ever, all our titles can be bought individually or as part of a CIPFA Publications subscription. A subscription provides you, and all your colleagues within your organisation, with online versions compromising all the public finance technical information and guidance you need – as soon as they are published. You can access new CIPFA public finance titles and over 100 titles from our back catalogue covering accounting, financial management, treasury, pensions and more.
