The quickest way to apply for ACCA is to complete your ACCA registration online, including uploading all your supporting documentation and making an online payment. This is our recommended application method.

If there are reasons why you cannot upload supporting documentation and/or make an online payment then you can still apply by post by completing an online application and posting supporting documentation and payment.

To complete a partial online application you will need to:

  • Complete the relevant sections of the online ACCA registration form
  • Print the .pdf at the end of the online application process and attach supporting documentation
  • Send - along with your payment - by registered post to ACCA, 110 Queen Street, Glasgow, United Kingdom, G1 3BX.

Don't forget to allow adequate time for postal delivery services from your home country to the UK.

You should check with your local postal delivery service first, to find out about delivery times to the UK. Or, you can view the delivery times listed below. The timings we show are only a guide. ACCA cannot take responsibility for delays in the postal system.
