Find an engagement letter

The collection of the ICAEW Library & Information Service includes a wide range of engagement letters and other model documents.

The search tool on this page allows you to check the library's online catalogue for example engagement letters and publications on engagement letters in the collection, as well as a range of other frequently requested letters including comfort letters, disengagement letters and letters of representation.

In most cases you will need to contact the enquiry team to obtain any letters or publications that you identify. However, some engagement letters issued by ICAEW are available online and these are listed in our guide to sources for engagement letters.
