How We Regulate

The Association's goal is to help to ensure that CPAA members provide a high quality, ethical and professional accountancy service to their clients.

Practising members of the Association are required to complete an annual return form each year, hold valid professional indemnity insurance, complete a program of CPD and be appropriately supervised by either a PBS or HMRC, in accordance with the money laundering regulations. 

All CPAA members are expected to show a full commitment to the IAESB Code of Ethics. The Association provides all members with comprehensive training on their ethical commitments. Any breaches of ethical commitments by a member are investigated by the Association and may result in disciplinary action.

The Association has a full and comprehensive complaints procedure. If you are a client or employer of one of our members and wish to make a complaint against them you can contact the CPAA and the issue will be investigated.
