Mission and Objects
The Hong Kong Institute of Accredited Accounting Technicians (HKIAAT) (formerly known as The Hong Kong Association of Accounting Technicians) was set up in 1988. We are the subsidiary of Hong Kong's only statutory licensing body of accountants, the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
The principal activities of HKIAAT are the award of the "Accredited Accounting Technician" qualification through conducting professional examinations, offering premier member and student services, accreditation of relevant sub-degree qualifications and promotion of the study of accountancy among sub-degree holders and secondary school students.
- To accredit persons whose employment wholly or partly comprises accountancy work but who have not qualified to be registered as Professional Accountants and who are to be known as Accounting Technicians.
- To encourage and/or secure the training and professional education and to conduct examination in relation thereto.
- To provide graduates with a chance for further development in the accounting field.
The HKIAAT works in the interest of its members and students. We are here to support them throughout their careers and provide the resources and guidance necessary for an individual to advance in the accounting profession.
