Business law

Business law covers ICAEW’s policy and related work on better regulation initiatives and selected areas of law and regulation.

Our work

Better regulation

Good regulation is essential for trust in business and ICAEW’s vision of a world of sustainable economies. See our ideas on how the UK regulatory regime could be improved and let us have your thoughts.

Company law

Selected developments in UK companies legislation relevant to accountants in practice or business, including a guide to directors’ duties.

Charity law

We work closely with ICAEW’s free Charity Community. Join now to access free webinars, e-newsletters and sector-specific resources to support you in your paid or voluntary charity role.


We work closely with ICAEW’s Restructuring and Insolvency Community which provides guidance, support and representation to insolvency practitioners (membership is open to everyone). ICAEW is also the largest regulator of Insolvency Practitioners.

Other business laws

Our work on other sectors (including workplace pensions and social housing) is largely channelled through other outlets in ICAEW including the Faculties and the ICAEW Library.
