The professional accountancy management body for SMEs and SMPs

The Institute of Financial Accountants (IFA) is an internationally recognised professional accountancy membership body. With a heritage spanning back to 1916, we are full members of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC). We are the only professional body that provides dedicated support to our members who operate within the small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) and practice (SMP) sectors. 



The IFA provides members with all the necessary tools to operate successfully as financial accountants. With the IFA, you can expect a wealth of experience and a streamlined focus that allows you to perform your accountancy duties to the best of your ability.

“The IFA offer a constant flow of guidance and support, which as a small practice is invaluable.”
Wilfred Smith, long-standing IFA member
