Royal visit for ACCA

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited ACCA's London headquarters today.

The royal party spent 45 minutes with more than 100 of the association’s staff and officers as part of the celebrations for Enterprise Day.

ACCA was chosen for a royal visit because of its success in the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, which recognise outstanding and sustained achievement by organisations based in the UK. It has won awards for international trade (1996 and 2001) and sustainable development (2002).

This year marks ACCA’s centenary and 30 years since it was granted its Royal Charter.

Speaking before the Queen unveiled a plaque in recognition of her visit, ACCA president John Brace said Enterprise Day provided an opportunity for UK-based business to celebrate their successes. ‘It also recognises the central role played by accountants in business,’ he added.
