Association of Chartered Certified Accountants
ACCA A British professional accounting organization. The ACCA has existed in a variety of forms and under a series of names since the early 1900s: It obtained a royal charter in 1974, and took its current name in 1996. Headquartered in London, the ACCA’s members have traditionally been accountants in business, with a focus on cost and management accounting, though the association’s members also work in a wide range of accounting and auditing roles. The ACCA is one of the United Kingdom’s five *Recognised Qualifying Bodies for external auditors. Many British internal auditors are ACCA members. The ACCA’s Web site states that its mission is, among other things, to "provide quality professional opportunities to people of ability and application throughout their working careers" and to "promote the highest ethical and governance standards." The association’s publications range from magazines and newsletters - the *ACCA Internal Audit Bulletin and * Accounting & Business - to a respected series of research monographs. The ACCA’s certification program has a high international profile, and it attracts a large number of students around the world, especially in the former British colonies of Hong Kong and Malaysia. Members carry the designatory letters ACCA or FCCA, the latter representing fellowship and determined by seniority. The ACCA’s international membership (including students) exceeded 300,000 in 2003.
