Association of Accounting Techinicians
The AAT was set up in 1980 by merging two accountancy bodies
- The Institute of Accounting Staff (IAS)
- The Association of Technicians in Finance and Accounting (ATFA)
At the time it had 5,995 members and 19,405 students.
Since then, the AAT has gained more than 120,000 members, and expanded its qualifications and branch network into 90 countries. The branches are run in the same way as they are in the UK, with volunteers giving up their time to support other AAT members in their professional development.
CIPFA, ICAEW, CIMA and ICAS have continued to support the AAT.
These bodies recognise the skill and aptitude of AAT qualified people by offering them attractive opportunities for further progression.
