ACCA’s deal with ACT goes global

A NEW memorandum of understanding with global reach has been agreed between ACCA and the ACT.

The new three-year agreement will see co-operation between the two bodies. ACCA members will benefit from fast-track exemptions or reduced fees towards the ACT’s set of qualifications. A previous MoU between the bodies was more UK-focused.

Neil Stevenson, ACCA executive director – brand, said: “By working together, ACCA and ACT will promote the benefits that professionals bring to the effective management of the organisations in which they work, especially those with complex financial arrangements.”

Stuart Siddall, ACT chief executive, said: “Working with ACCA, the global body for professional accountants, is very important for us. It extends our international reach and it brings genuine mutual and practical benefits to our respective members.”
