In the United Kingdom the term accountant is not protected by law, therefore anyone can call themselves an accountant.
Being a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) means that you can have confidence that Middle Marsh is qualified to handle your finances, help your business grow and that it is regulated by one of the leading accountancy bodies in the world.
The ACCA qualification provides a wide ranging skill-set, which means members are trained to provide both strategic and operational input and adapt quickly to your changing management accounting needs.
Like many other professionals, ACCA members are required to complete continuing professional development. ACCA members are required to undertake a minimum of 40 hours of verifiable training per year, of which at least 21 hours must be classroom based. This ongoing training is designed to help maintain and develop the knowledge and skills an ACCA member needs to succeed in today’s dynamic and demanding business environment.
