Before attempting your payment, please ensure that you have sufficient funds in your account and check that your transaction will not exceed your credit limit. If you’re making payment from outside of the UK, please contact your bank first to ensure that the payment will be successful.

  • Payment options

    If you are ready to pay, you can make an online payment now. If you need help, here’s a short video to show you how.

    You can pay online using the following:

    • Credit card – Visa, MasterCard, China UnionPay*
    • Debit card – Visa, Mastercard, China UnionPay*
    • PayPal
    • Alipay**
    • Pre-paid debit card (for online payments only).

    * China UnionPay is not compatible with Internet Explorer. We recommend you use the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers if submitting your payment using China UnionPay

    ** If experiencing any difficulty with Alipay, please refer to their website for help.

    Online payments should appear on your account within 48 hours of payment being received. It is important that you tell us if there has been a problem with your payment. To do so please contact ACCA Connect by phone or email.

  • Bank transfer

    Make a transfer from your bank straight to ours. Use your ACCA ID as the reference (7 digit number). It's really important that you use your ACCA ID only, and nothing else. This way we'll be able to automatically match your payment to your account.

    You can pay your subscription balance in instalments to make things more manageable. You will need to pay the full balance by 1 January each year.

    Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make a part payment via your myACCA.

  • Setting up a regular annual payment

    To make your annual payment quicker and easier next year, you might want to consider one of these options:

    Recurring Transaction Authority (RTA) allows you to give us permission to regularly take payment from your Visa (Debit/Credit) and MasterCard (Debit/Credit) for your annual subscription invoice. This is only available for open annual subscription invoices.

    One Click allows you to make a payment via myACCA with payment card details you have entered previously. Once a card has been used to make a successful payment, you can make future payments just by entering your card security number. This will allow you to make payments faster and easier without re-entering your details. Please note, One Click can only be used with Visa (Debit/Credit) and MasterCard (Debit/Credit) when saving the card details to your account.
