We have three levels of professional membership. Find out what AAT professional membership can do for your career.

  • Bookkeeping membership (AATQB): Gain a professional status to demonstrate your expertise to employers and clients. Perfect for those specialising in bookkeeping or while gaining the requirements for full membership.
  • Full membership (MAAT): Our internationally recognised MAAT status demonstrates that you've achieved the AAT Accounting Qualifications, and have gained work experience in finance and accounting.
  • Fellow membership (FMAAT): The highest level of membership you can achieve within AAT. Members can apply for FMAAT status when they've been a MAAT for five years or more.
