You automatically become an AAT affiliate member once you've completed the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting.
If you choose not to progress to AAT professional membership, you'll remain an affiliate and pay the affiliate membership fee at your next renewal.
- Annual membership fee: £146
- Reinstatement fee: £50
Move on to full membership (MAAT)
Full membership is the next logical step. You’ll gain the designatory letters MAAT, giving you professional recognition, and showcase your technical ability to employers, colleagues and clients.
You'll need to have work experience that shows you can apply the skills and knowledge you learned in your qualification in a practical work environment.
Move on to bookkeeping membership (AATQB)
If you don't yet have work experience in a finance role you can still gain professional recognition as a bookkeeping member and then apply for MAAT status when you meet the requirements.
