The Future-Focused Finance Towards Excellence Accreditation process is designed to allow the FLC to give due recognition to organisations that have the very best finance skills development culture and practices in place. There are three levels, each designed to reflect the continuous development of your finance function and recognising the highest standards of financial competence and commitment to skills development. Accreditation lasts for three years, after which you will seek re-accreditation following the same process.

CIPFA is currently undergoing changes to its accreditation process, until this is completed you will no longer need to hold accreditation with them when applying for Future-Focused Finance Towards Excellence Accreditation.

The submission deadlines are 31 December, 30 April and 31 August each year. Please ensure you are using the 2021 version of the proforma and once completed, please send to
