Briefings for finance

We have developed a few short briefings for finance on topical subjects. These briefings have been designed to quickly update finance professionals and point to further resources and guidance.

These briefings have been created to give you:

  1. The essential background information
  2. Actions that finance professionals can take
  3. Links to resources and further guidance

More briefings are being developed, so sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear about news briefings.
