CIPFA publications

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

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. We are still printing hard copies of those titles that are available in that format, such as the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting in the United Kingdom 2020/21, and its Guidance Notes and Disclosure Checklist, which will be released later in 2020.

You can access new CIPFA public finance titles and over 100 titles from our back catalogue covering accounting, financial management, treasury, pensions and more. Find out more about a Publications subscription. You can also find out more about our range of publications on our Publications homepage, and please direct any enquiries concerning publications to customer servicesor call 020 7543 5600.
