Corporate Reporting Faculty Board and Committees
The Corporate Reporting Faculty maintains a number of Boards and Committees to guide our work interacting with regulators, standard setters and legislators. This page provides information about the Boards and Committees that support our technical work.
Members volunteer their time and play a key role in ensuring that we sustain a strong reputation and influence with those who set the standards and law that shapes our members’ work.
As a professional body working in the public interest ICAEW helps legislators and standard setters to assess the impact of their proposals on businesses and the economy. This technical work is a core activity for ICAEW. To help us to do it we have significant support from many members who volunteer their time to serve on our boards and committees as well as supporting our work in other ways.
The experience and expertise that members bring helps us provide informed comments to standard setters, regulators and government.
The Corporate Reporting Faculty is overseen by a board that is responsible for the services the faculty provides to members and for shaping ICAEW technical policy in its area of specialism.
The Corporate Reporting Faculty helps guide members through the current and emerging reporting requirements and provides them with high quality, up-to-date guidance and online resources. The faculty is also responsible for formulating ICAEW policy on financial reporting issues and makes submissions to standard setters and other external bodies on behalf of ICAEW.
