The Practitioners’ Network comprises approximately 24,000 members across the UK. It provides information and services to members in public practice, including extensive technical information and a wide range of facilities. These include:

Magazine

In Practice is a monthly e-magazine that is emailed automatically to Practitioners' Network members. The e-magazines contain news and feature articles on key issues affecting those in public practice, as well as the latest news on relevant ACCA activities, facilities and publications.  

To see the most recent edition, visit the online newsletters page.

Facilities/Services

ACCA UK has developed a portfolio of ACCA-branded products, together with specially negotiated discounts on a range of external products to help practitioners manage their practices more effectively. These include professional indemnity insurance cover, a legal helpline and private medical insurance. 

For more information visit the Member Support Services page.

Technical Advice

The Technical Advisory Service provides advice to practitioners on a wide range of matters. It also offers comment and analysis on key issues (e.g. the use of disclaimers in audit reports) as well as issuing technical factsheets containing detailed advice on major issues.

For more information visit the Technical advisory service pages.

Practising Certificates

All members who wish to perform work under ACCA's definition of public practice are required to hold Practising Certificates from ACCA. In order to train students and members towards such certificates, all practices must be registered and monitored by ACCA.

For more information visit the Practising Certificates pages.

The ACCA logo

Use of the ACCA logo on your letterhead and other stationery will reinforce your value as a qualified professional. The mark can also be put on your website to reinforce the sense that your firm belongs to a global grouping. The ACCA logo for both stationery and your website can be downloaded from the "myACCA " section of ACCA's website. ACCA logo window stickers are available for your practice - please request them from the Member Network’s manager whose contact details are on this page.
