The global body for professional accountants

ACCA offers business-relevant, first-choice qualifications to people of application, ability and ambition around the world. The ACCA Qualification is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and professional values which will deliver finance professionals who are capable of building successful careers across all sectors.

The ACCA Qualification is an asset which our members have invested heavily in throughout their years of training. We maintain the value of this investment by building our international reputation for excellence, integrity and relevance with policy makers, regulators and employers across all sectors of the accountancy profession.

ACCA qualifications are examined to the highest consistent global standards in over 170 countries and are based on international accounting standards. We offer a range of entry and exit points and a suite of qualifications ensuring that all levels of accountancy, finance and management expertise are catered for.

Adapted papers are offered in financial accounting and auditing, as well as variant papers that test local law and tax. It is this application of consistent global standards combined with flexible training routes and locally relevant options that enables ACCA to remove artificial barriers and provide access to the profession to such a diverse range of people.

ACCA also provides members with a continuing professional development (CPD) framework for keeping their knowledge and skills up to date and gives members access to the latest research and technical reports.
