Welcome to the CIPFA Scotland regional homepage

UK map

CIPFA's presence in Scotland includes a dedicated office and a regional branch. We provide events, awards, training, qualifications, an annual conference and more.

Formed in 1906, the Scottish branch has over 1,000 CIPFA-qualified full members and 300 student members. A number of important branch activities take place each year including the annual conference and the development weekend.

The chief function of the Scottish branch is to promote the policies and reputation of the institute in Scotland, in particular the science of public finance and accountancy.

A reminder for anyone who may need support: CIPFA's Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub is available to you and anyone in your personal or workplace networks. The hub brings together information and support on a wide range of topics. Access is free of charge, anonymous and there's no need to register.

A forum for CIPFA members and students in the regions to share ideas, documentation and discuss future plans.

The forum is restricted to CIPFA region members and uses the same login details as the CIPFA website. You will be asked to login if you are not already logged in to the website.

We have produced a guideline document on how to use the forum and some best practice hints and tips to help you get started.

You could help your region to support members and students, in a variety of ways as a regional volunteer. We need the help of willing volunteers and have a broad range of opportunities for any member or student who is interested in getting involved.
