ICAEW and the creative industries
The creative industries are major contributors to culture, the economy and innovation. In the UK alone, they contribute £101.5bn in 2017, according to the latest government estimates, per annum to the economy (GVA). They’re fast growing and employ more than three million people – across film, fine arts, design, music, video games, fashion, TV, crafts, publishing, radio, photography and heritage.
ICAEW is committed to boosting investment in the creative industries and providing them with expert professional advice.
