The Association of International Accountants (AIA)

The Association of International Accountants (AIA) is a professional accountancy body. It was founded in the UK in 1928 and since that date has promoted the concept of ‘international accounting’ to create a global network of accountants in over 85 countries worldwide.[1]

AIA is recognised by the UK Government as a Recognised Qualifying Body (RQB)[2] for statutory auditors under the Companies Act 2006, and is a Designated Body across the European Union under the Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) directive as well as a Prescribed Body under the Companies (Auditing and Accounting) Act 2003 in the Republic of Ireland.

AIA has supervisory status for its members in the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 and the AIA professional qualification is currently recognised in over 30 countries worldwide.

AIA has Awarding Body status under the National Qualifications Framework and AIA's second stage application to operate in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) was approved by Ofqual’s Regulators’ Recognition and Accreditation Group (RRAG) at their meeting in November 2010.[citation needed]

The AIA's Head Office is at the Metro Riverside business park, Newcastle upon Tyne, and it has established branches in Hong Kong, Greece, Cyprus, Singapore and Malaysia.
