Our members are represented at every level of the finance and accounting world, including students, people already working in accountancy and self-employed business owners.
We award practical, skills-based accounting and finance qualifications at three levels, foundation, advanced and professional. These qualifications are industry recognised and demanded by employers. AAT Accounting Technicians are the building blocks of finance teams across all types of organisations, including commerce and industry, government, public services and private practice.
AAT’s Accounting Qualifications are the perfect foundation for further training, and generous exemptions to further study are offered by chartered and certified accountancy bodies such as ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA, ICAEW and ICAS. Currently AAT has 14 partnerships or exemption arrangements around the world, including in Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.
AAT is only accounting technician body recognised by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) as a full member. This means we comply with IFAC’s statements of membership obligations concerning the adoption and implementation of international standards and codes of ethics, and the monitoring and discipline of our members. We are committed to supporting AFA and IFAC in strengthening the profession and helping to develop economies throughout the word by championing the use of skilled, qualified finance professionals.
