What we do

UK’s leading qualification and membership body for vocational accountants

We work across the globe with around 140,000 members in more than 90 countries. 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.

AAT members are ambitious, focused accounting professionals, many occupying senior, well rewarded positions with thousands of employers - from blue-chip corporate giants to public sector institutions.

Practical, real world qualifications

The AAT Accounting Qualification is universally respected and internationally recognised. Organisations such as Sainsbury’s, P&G, Morgan Stanley, the Ministry of Defence and many more continue to hire AAT qualified members for their knowledge, skills, diligence and enthusiasm, because AAT represents the highest standards of professionalism. 

In short, an AAT qualification is a route to some of the most in-demand skills in the world, and provides you with a professional status you can be proud of.

AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) award around 90% of all vocational qualifications in accounting, and are sponsored by the professional accounting bodies CIPFA, ICAEW, CIMA and ICAS.

Support network

We support and develop our members through more than 580 AAT approved training providers around the world. We also have an extensive branch network where members can access support and training and meet other AAT members in their local area.
