You will be transferred to membership approximately 12 working days after we receive confirmation of your acceptance - subject to the next available membership committee meeting.
Membership applications are normally processed within four weeks of receipt. We will contact you during this period should we require any further information.
To quality assure the practical experience requirement (PER) process and protect the integrity of the ACCA Qualification, we carry out PER audits. You will be notified if you are selected for a PER audit as this may result in your transfer to membership being delayed. We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation on this.

When you are ready to apply for ACCA membership or when have you been invited to transfer to membership, please submit a copy (not originals) of your Student Training Records (STRs) to us for review. These will be used to verify that you have completed the practical experience necessary for ACCA membership.
Successful applications are reported to ACCA's committee members once a fortnight. Following this meeting, you will be sent a welcome pack including a congratulatory letter, a membership information booklet, a copy of our rulebook (CD format) and an invoice for the membership admission fee.
Membership certificates are officially sealed at the meeting of ACCA Council members. ACCA Council meets five times a year (dates vary). Certificates are sent out after each meeting.
Members will be awarded fellowship after five-years' continuous membership and full participation in continuing professional development. Fellows are entitled to use the letters FCCA after their names. Certificates are prepared and dispatched automatically to members; a formal application is unnecessary.
