ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Money is the main reason why most companies exist. They either want to make it, save it, use it more effectively or advise other companies on how to make it, save it or use it more effectively. Even charities and not-for-profit companies need to make sure they use their funds in the most efficient way.

All organisations have one thing in common. They need accountancy professionals who understand finance. Who can play a fundamental role in running the business. Who can help make the business a success.

Whether you are a school-leaver, already working or already a finance professional, we can help you to make the right decision about starting a career in accountancy.
