MAAT - full membership

If you already have your AAT qualification, you can apply for full AAT membership which gives you access to wealth of opportunity and benefits.

Once elected as a full member you'll be able to use the letters MAAT after your name, representing your professional membership of AAT. The letters confirm that you:

  • Are a qualified finance professional
  • Have gained relevant work experience
  • Are keen to excel and progress further in your career.
