What we do

AAT is the world’s leading professional body for accounting technicians

We work across the globe with around 130,000 members in more than 100 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

AAT Accounting Qualifications are 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. We award around 80% of all vocational qualifications in accounting. 

AAT qualifications are highly respected internationally and are regulated by all four UK qualification regulators, including Ofqual (England), CCEA (Northern Ireland), SQA (Scotland) and Qualifications Wales. AAT is also a recognised End Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) for the purpose of providing End Point Assessments (EPAs) for apprenticeships in accounting at levels 2, 3 and 4.

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.

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.
