What you need to know:
  • The application process will take around 10 minutes to complete.
  • You will have the opportunity to apply for exemptions during the process.
  • If you apply for exemptions, you need to upload evidence that you are eligible. Our guide to exemptions can help you prepare the correct documents. 
  • By submitting your qualification documents, ACCA will award the maximum exemptions available to you. Please note that an exemption fee is charged for each ACCA exam that you are awarded an exemption. For more information please check charges applicable to you. Fees are payable within 30 days of receipt of your exemption award, in accordance with our exemption terms and conditions
  • We work in partnership with national accountancy bodies in certain countries, so you may also need to register with another local organisation and pay additional charges. Check the list of Joint Examination Schemes to see if this applies to you.
  • If you register on or before the late entry June exam deadline in your first year, you will be invoiced the annual subscription fee as you’re eligible to sit exams in the June, September and December sessions. Check important dates. After that your annual subscription fee is due and payable on or before 1 January each year if you wish to remain an active student. We send you an invoice every November. You need to pay this even if you don't plan to take any exams that year.
  • If your employer or education provider has provided you with a registration code, please enter it in the Registration Code field on stage 4 of your application. If you haven’t been provided with a code, please leave this blank. 


Please note that for students and members based outside of the UK and EU, your information will be transferred and held outside of the region of your residence and may be accessed by our local office in your country of residence. ACCA processes information within the UK & EU, but may also transfer data outside of the UK & EU as part of its operations and service delivery.
