Becoming chartered: reduced AAT membership

We encourage members to continue their professional development and progression, while appreciating that managing the expense of further study and professional membership fees can be costly.

See how AAT membership can support you as you continue your career.

Reduced membership fees

If you go on to study for chartered accountancy as a full or fellow member, you can apply for a reduced membership fee to receive a discount on your AAT membership fee while you study.

The reduced membership fee for full and fellow membership is available subject to eligibility and you must apply for it each year you remain eligible. (Retired members can apply on a one-off basis.) Life members are not eligible to apply.

Exemptions from chartered exams 

As an AAT full or fellow member (MAAT or FMAAT), you’ll receive generous exemptions from certain exams with these organisations. Use the links to find out which exams.

Specialising in tax

Alternatively you could choose to become a tax specialist with the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT).

If you undertake self-employed work or are thinking of becoming self-employed in the future, please ensure you comply with the regulations of the professional membership body you decide to register with.
