The 2015 edition of the Academies Financial Handbook is no longer in effect. Please refer to the latest version of the Academies Financial Handbook.
A handbook issued by EFA, setting out academies' financial requirements for the period beginning 1 September 2015.
The Academies Financial Handbook sets out the financial management, control and reporting requirements that apply to all academy trusts. It describes a financial framework for trusts that focuses on principles rather than detailed guidance and reflects their accountability to Parliament and to the public. Compliance with the handbook is a condition of each trust’s funding agreement.
