Zanzibar Institute of Financial Administration (ZIFA) as it currently exists was established by Presidential Order of 2nd July 1998. This was mandated by the official Act No.1 of 2002.

The Institute is located at Chwaka village, scenic fishing village in Central District 30 kilometers from Zanzibar town.

The alarming scarcity of accountants in middle level class forced the Government of Zanzibar to establish an Institute which will teach as many middle cadre accountants as possible. Therefore, ZIFA was established to cater that need.
