Admissions to associate membership

Conferring ceremonies

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and in line with public health advice, we need to postpone our face-to face events, including conferrings. These events are an enjoyable celebration of your achievements - not the official date you become a Chartered Accountant. You become a member from the date your application is approved by the Oversight Board. We hope to reschedule the conferrings or find other ways to celebrate, and will be in touch about this. 

 Admission to Membership 

The final closing date for receipt of applications for admission to membership this year is:

  • 8 December 2020
  • Dates for 2021 to be confirmed: the earliest is likely to be in February 2021

Flexible route applicants: please apply at least one week before these dates
