Professional bodies

The ICAEW Library & Information Service maintains a collection of material on the history and development of the professional bodies in the accountancy sector, including publications issued by many early accountancy bodies that are no longer in existence.

The articles and books in the collection include academic studies on the history of the profession and works on the history of individual bodies. You can access a list of articles and books on the history of professional accountancy bodies using our online catalogue, LibCat.

The library also has collections of memberships lists and members handbooks of many professional bodies.

Index of UK and Irish accountancy and professional bodies

This index provides information on professional associations, bodies, societies and institutes in the UK and Republic of Ireland that are related to the accountancy profession. It aims to provide a record of current and defunct organisations including historical information such as name changes.
