The Association of
Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is a British chartered accountancy
body with a global presence that offers the Chartered Certified Accountant
(Designatory letters ACCA or FCCA) qualification worldwide. It is the world's
largest and fastest-growing international accountancy body with 110,000
members and 260,000 affiliates and students in 170 countries. The Institute's
headquarters are in London with the principal administrative office being
based in Glasgow. In addition the ACCA has a network of over 70 staffed
offices and other centres around the world.
The ACCA is a founding member body of the Consultative Committee of
Accountancy Bodies (CCAB) and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).
The term Chartered in ACCA qualification refers to the Royal Charter granted
by Her Majesty the Queen in the United Kingdom.
Since Chartered Certified Accountant is a legally protected term, individuals
who describe themselves as Chartered Certified Accountants must be the member
of the ACCA and, if they carry out public practice engagements, must comply
with additional regulations such as holding a practicing certificate, being
insured against any possible liability claims and submitting to inspections.
The ACCA qualification is legally recognised as Qualified Company Secretary
in Pakistan, and there is partial recognition between ACCA and the local
statutory accounting body (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan).
