About AAT

The Association of Accounting Technicians, or AAT, are leaders in the accounting industry, building practical skills through internationally recognised qualifications and professional membership. Their members range from aspiring accountants to those running their own accountancy practices.

The company works across the globe with around 140,000 members in more than 90 countries. AAT members are ambitious and focused accounting professionals, many occupying senior, well-rewarded positions with thousands of employers - from blue-chip corporate giants to public sector institutions.

The AAT Accounting Qualification is universally respected and internationally recognised. Organisations such as Sainsbury’s, P&G, Morgan Stanley and the Ministry of Defence hire AAT-qualified members for their knowledge, skills, diligence and enthusiasm.

They support and develop members through more than 580 AAT-approved training providers around the world and an extensive branch network where members can access support and training, as well as meet other AAT members in their local area.

AAT is headquartered in London.
