Association of International Accountants

ALA A British-based professional accounting organization. Headquartered in Newcastle, England, the AIA was founded in 1928 and incorporated four years later, in 1932. The AIA was recognized in 1994 as a *Recognised Qualifying Body for external auditors in the United Kingdom, and it registered its first company auditor in 1998. Most AIA members, however, work outside *public accounting. The association’s Web site states that it "promotes and supports the advancement of the accounting profession both in the UK and internationally." The AIA’s magazine * International Accountant appears quarterly. The AIA membership totalled 14,500 (including 10,000 students) in 2003, with a strong international dimension, as its name suggests.
