David Ellis, FAN Advisor, CIPFA | LinkedIn Profile
David joined CIPFA in July 2012 as a FAN advisor, after a 30 year career in local government. He spent several years as chief accountant with key responsibilities for the statement of accounts.
David has an extensive technical knowledge and practical understanding of local authority financial statements and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)-based Code of Practice, and uses that wealth of knowledge and experience to provide support and guidance to practitioners across local government in his established role as FAN advisor. David qualified with CIPFA back in 1989 and uses his passion for understanding the evolving technical aspects of local authority accounting to provide support to finance staff at a practical level. As the pressures on local government funding and services continue to bite, CIPFA's FAN support is becoming an ever-important lifeline for busy practitioners in helping them prepare for and manage the changes in financial reporting and accounting required to comply with the code of practice.
