Faculties Online from 2023

Author: Faculties Online

Published: 20 Oct 2022

As part of a wider initiative to support ICAEW members* with their lifelong learning, faculty subscriptions to the Audit and Assurance Faculty, Financial Reporting Faculty and Tax Faculty will be included as part of ICAEW membership from 1 January 2023.

This means that the Faculties Online subscription will be discontinued from 1 January 2023.

From January 2023, the online content from these three faculties will not be restricted for ICAEW members, however you are still encouraged to join the faculties. As a faculty member, you will benefit by:

  • Staying ahead with timely practical and technical content delivered straight to your inbox.
  • Having the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals.
  • Playing your part in supporting the profession by contributing to policy-making, participating in technical consultations and providing insight for ICAEW’s thought leadership work.

When renewing your ICAEW membership for 2023, there will no longer be a cost for faculty membership for these three faculties shown on your subscription notice or payment screen. To become a faculty member, you must ensure that the faculty option is selected.

Non-ICAEW members are welcome to join the faculties but will be required to pay a subscription.

There will still be a cost for membership of Corporate Finance Faculty and Financial Services Faculty for ICAEW members and other individuals.


If you are an ACA student, from January 2023 you will be able to access the online content from all five ICAEW faculties for free via our website. Look out for more information in the new year within the Student Insights enewsletter.

Excel online training

If you have registered for Excel Community’s Excel online training via your Faculties Online subscription to the Excel Community, then you will need to complete this training. From 2023 Excel online training will no longer be provided by Filtered.


ICAEW members will no longer need to pay a subscription fee for any of our communities when they renew their ICAEW membership.

*ICAEW members are associate members (ACA) and fellow members (FCA).
