Professional membership

As an AAT professional member, your employee commits to keeping their skills and knowledge up to date, making sure your business has the competitive edge. In return, they achieve a professional status recognised by colleagues and clients.

As part of their membership, we provide a wealth of resources to help them keep their skills fresh including a monthly newsletter, technical and ethical helplines, podcasts and industry updates.

Who can become a professional member?

On completion of the Advanced Diploma in Accounting or the Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping your staff can gain a professional status of becoming an AAT Bookkeeper, enabling them to use the designatory letters AATQB.

On completion of the Professional Diploma in Accounting, your staff have the opportunity to apply for AAT full membership and use the designatory letters MAAT. And, after five years as a MAAT and with senior and managerial work experience, your staff can apply for fellow membership, FMAAT.
