AAT Annual Report and accounts

"The 2020–2021 financial year saw AAT deliver a strong performance in a challenging operating environment. Despite the unprecedented challenges posed by the pandemic, we've continued to focus on our impact and the way we change lives and help individuals and businesses to succeed. Our staff, members and students have been at the heart of everything we've done and I'm proud to see how we've continued to build and position the organisation so it can re-emerge triumphantly and continue on its upward trajectory. We've been changing people's lives for over 40 years now and we'll continue to do so – whatever the future holds."

David Frederick, AAT President

The Annual Report and accounts for the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) provides an overview of our performance from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.

Within the strategic report you'll find our highlights over the 12 months, including the impact we're having on people's lives and careers, on businesses, and on economies and society as a whole. It also contains our Section 172 Statement as well as information on our energy use and carbon emissions.

The key performance indicators demonstrate what we've achieved against the objectives set out in our business plan. We show comparative figures, as well as those for the 12 months that the Annual Report covers. We also look at our strategic risks and how we operate as a responsible business in the wider environment.

The governance section covers the AAT Group's governance and management. It also contains the Trustees' responsibilities statement.

The full accounts are available towards the end of the report. The statement of financial activities for the Group, balance sheets and statements of cash flow are included alongside the auditor's report. Here you'll also find a list of our Council members, honours and awards.
