IPA welcomes Creative Industries - Routes to Finance launch

The IPA welcomes today's launch of Creative Industries - Routes to Finance by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).


The launch includes a free guide to financing for creative businesses and the announcement of a £40m Edge Creative Enterprise Fund, backed by the Government’s British Business Bank, available to fast-growing small and medium-sized creative industries.

Says IPA Finance Director Tom Lewis "All our member agencies need to have a sound grasp of finance to thrive commercially; the ICAEW's guide supports our training and qualifications in this area, most notably the Commercial Certificate. 

"Our members are increasingly tech-led, and tech is joining advertising as one of the UK's great success stories, so support for this growing area is especially welcome. 

UK advertising, a significant source of inward investment, is worth around £20bn annually and employs around 500,000 people.

Access the IPA’s Commercial Certificate, free to all IPA members, here.
