Find an engagement letter
The collection of the ICAEW Library & Information Service includes a wide range of engagement letters and other model documents.
Issuing an engagement letter?
If you are issuing a letter of engagement, consider carefully whether you need a practising certificate. Practising without a practising certificate in the UK or the rest of the EEA can result in disciplinary action. Find out more about the requirements and the key matters you need to consider when setting up in practice.
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.
