Fellow membership (FMAAT)
Have your senior experience recognised
Becoming an FMAAT shows the world you have the senior experience, advanced expertise and sustained professionalism it takes to be a leader in the finance industry.
Access to exclusive strategy and management content and learning resources through our dedicated online resource – the AAT Knowledge Hub.
Additional discounts on events and training across our paid events.
Increased salary potential – our research shows that FMAAT status holders typically earn £10,000 a year more than MAATs. (Median salary figures taken from the 2021 AAT Salary Survey.)
The chance to connect with the wider professional community at free CPD and local networking events across the UK.
Discounts on the things you buy every day, from cinema tickets to holidays and insurance, through AAT Rewards.
Add the internationally recognised letters FMAAT after your name. This is the highest AAT designation you can achieve, demonstrating your senior experience, skill and expertise.
You can apply for FMAAT status if you are a current full member (MAAT) and have been a MAAT for five continuous years or more in the period immediately prior to applying.
If you are currently a lapsed MAAT, you will need to reinstate your full membership and then build up your five years of continuous membership to be eligible. Please note continuous years of membership accrued prior to lapsing are not taken into account.

How to apply
Apply for AAT fellow membership in just three easy steps.
Complete our fit and proper assessment when prompted in the application process.
To be approved as a fellow member, you’ll need to provide details of five years' senior work experience. For example, you might take sole responsibility for set tasks, have supervisory responsibilities, or undertake specialist projects.
Are you a licensed member?
If you've been a licensed member for more than five years you don't need to provide details of your work experience, as we’re aware of the work you undertake. If you’ve been licensed for less than five years, you’ll need to submit work experience for the remaining time period.
Once you've submitted your application you'll need to pay the one-off admission fee.
For your annual membership fee, you won't be charged the fellow membership rate until the next time you renew your membership.
Once you've completed your application, we’ll check the information you’ve supplied and if we need any further information, we’ll contact you as soon as possible.
As soon as your application is approved, we’ll contact you by email and send your FMAAT certificate to confirm your new status.
Your application can take up to ten working days to process.
Reinstate your membership
If you've previously been an AAT fellow member and want to join us again, complete the fellow membership reinstatement form.
Once we've received your application we'll send you an email within ten working days, with details of how to pay the one-off reinstatement fee and FMAAT annual membership fee online. Your application won't be assessed until payment has been made.
