Site maintenance, Tuesday 30 September - Wednesday 1 October

We’re carrying out some maintenance work on the AAT discussion forums (forums.aat.org.uk) on Tuesday 30 September 2014, and this is now likely to run into Wednesday 1 October. What this means for you:

- You will still be able to search the site and access all threads as normal.
- New users won’t be able to register for an account.
- You won’t be able to post new threads or reply to existing threads.
- This will have no effect on the AAT website (aat.org.uk).

You should be able to post to the forums as normal (and new users should be able to register) by the evening of Wednesday 1 October.

Apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime, and thanks for your patience.

    HI

    CCAB = The Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies. ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW, ICAS and ICAI are the bodies that constitute it.

      Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies
      The major accountancy professional bodies in the UK and Ireland first joined together in 1974 to form the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies. CCAB is now a limited company with six members:

      The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales - ICAEW
      The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland - ICAS
      The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland - ICAI
      The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants - ACCA
      The Chartered Insititute of Management Accountants - CIMA
      The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accounting - CIPFA

      CCAB's core objective is to promote and protect the CCAB qualified Accountant brand. It has taken a leading role in regulatory matters and an increasingly important role in forging links with the international community. Where appropriate it facilitates collaboration between the six bodies in education and training. From time to time the six professional bodies issue guidance on technical matters through CCAB.

      The CCAB bodies have worked closely together for some time by coordinating work on competence-led assessment, standards of competence and vocational qualifications, and liaising with external agencies about professional accountancy qualifications. Collaborative work, particularly in relation to the Government?s proposals for a National Qualifications Framework, will continue via a grouping of the Education and Training Directors of the six bodies.

            Re:CCAB

            19051984 is correct. In order to be CCAB qualified, you need to be qualified with one of these bodies:

            The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales - ICAEW
            The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland - ICAS
            The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland - ICAI
            The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants - ACCA
            The Chartered Insititute of Management Accountants - CIMA
            The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accounting - CIPFA
