Accounting standards

The ICAEW Library & Information Service holds a comprehensive collection of accounting and auditing standards, past and present, which are available to assist researchers and practitioners with their work.

The collection covers UK and international accounting standards from the 1940s to the present day, in a mixture of print and electronic formats.

In addition to the published standards, the collection includes a wide variety of material relating to the development of the standards (such as consultations, discussion papers and draft standards) as well as a selection of commentaries and guidance on their application.
