Association of Accounting Technicians


Association of Accounting Technicians
AAT A British professional accounting organization. The AAT was established in 1980 by combining two previously existing associations: The Association of Technicians in Finance and Accounting, and the Institute of Accounting Staff. The AAT’s Web site states that its vision is "to be a strong, visible and respected body for accounting technicians; to offer internationally recognised membership and qualifications, which are valued by the public, employers and the business world." Most of the AAT’s members work in industry, and after AAT certification many members proceed to the examinations of the *Association of Chartered Certified Accountants or other members of the United Kingdom’s *Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies. The AAT has over 100,000 international members, including students, and it is an associate member of the *International Federation of Accountants. Web site: www.aat.co.uk
