The IAB … for bookkeepers, run by successful bookkeepers
The International Association of Bookkeepers is a membership organisation and awarding body providing qualifications in bookkeeping, payroll and finance to members worldwide.
Our aim is simple – raising the bar of bookkeeping both in the UK and abroad – by creating a global community of aspirational, entrepreneurial, highly-qualified and successful bookkeepers and finance professionals.
We offer accredited training, support and continuing development from the beginning of a student’s journey and throughout their career. This includes flexible, Ofqual-regulated qualifications, continued professional development and frequent regulatory updates
As an IAB member, you’ll have access to weekly support via our Ambassador Groups including twice-monthly live Q&As with the main directors, both successful bookkeepers in their own right, giving you the help you need every step of the way.
With qualifications regulated by Ofqual, the IAB is a statutory supervisory body under the Money Laundering Regulations. Setting world-class standards, it offers students worldwide the chance to gain the very best financial qualifications – as well as lifelong skills. The IAB is also a professional body for bookkeepers.
Founded in 1973, the IAB is both an awarding and professional body. Today, celebrating over 40 years of success, it not only offers a host of regulated bookkeeping and business qualifications, it supports and regulates professionals on their career path.
