All members are required to submit an annual CPD declaration, no matter what CPD route you have chosen to follow. Once you have met the requirements you can submit your annual CPD declaration online at any point in the year by logging into myACCA.

There are two options for completing your annual CPD declarations - online or on paper. Details of the process, guidance notes and information on what to do if you are experiencing difficulties in completing your CPD can be found on this page.

Option 1: Complete your CPD declaration online

Login to myACCA to complete your annual CPD declaration online.

Option 2: Complete your CPD declaration on paper

Alternatively, you will receive a paper version as part of your annual membership renewal notice. Your CPD declaration should be submitted to us by 1 January of the following year.




The process is simple, you need to:

  • indicate your CPD route
  • indicate if you are involved in the audit of historical financial information; and
  • confirm that you have kept your professional ethics up to date.

If you are a member who have not been able to meet your CPD requirement, you are given an option to declare this on the form. We will contact you to ensure you make up any CPD shortfall. You will need to make a replacement declaration to notify us when you have made-up the shortfall.



There is clear guidance accompanying the CPD declaration which will help you, should you have any queries. You should be aware that the failure to submit your CPD declaration on a timely basis, or complete your CPD as required, could result in removal from the register.

If you are facing difficulties with CPD please contact us as soon as possible, as you may have completed the requirement - or be eligible for a different route or a waiver - without realising it.
