Tools and Resources FAQ

What can I find in the Tools and Resource Hub?

The Tools and Resources hub is a platform with tools and resources designed to help you to service your clients and run and grow your business. This hub contains tools and resources most used by members in practice.

Where can I find tools and resources if I’m not working in a practice?

Members working in corporate or not-for-profit organisations, or the Public Sector, can locate relevant tools and resources through CA Library’s Tools, Templates and Guidance page (https://library.charteredaccountantsanz.com/tools/#/australia/ or https://library.charteredaccountantsanz.com/tools/#/new-zealand/).

Practice tools and resources will still be available in CA Library for a transitional period.

If I don’t work in a practice, can I still use these Tools and Resource Hub?

Even if you do not work in a practice, you may still find relevant resources and tools in this hub. You will also find more adapted content in our CA Library available here:

How do I provide feedback or suggest a new tool or resource for the Tools and Resource Hub?

How can I find toolkits, checklists and templates?

The hub contains a range of tools and resources. If you are most interested in practical tools that you can download and adapt to your practice, then change the filters to only list these:

  1. Click ‘filter’ (to the left of the blue ‘search’)
  2. Click ‘content type’
  3. Click on the tick boxes next to ‘toolkit’, ‘template’, ‘checklist’.

As a number of tools contain a combination of templates and checklists your search is most likely to find the result you are seeking by clicking on all three tool content types.
