An in-depth guide to transferring to membership
The quickest and simplest way to ensure a smooth transition from trainee to member is to record your practical experience requirement (PER) in My Experience through myACCA. All you will need to do once you have met the membership requirements is accept the invitation to transfer to membership you will receive from ACCA – a significantly faster way to become an ACCA member than if you submitted an online or manual membership application. Here’s an explanation of how the process works and also some hints and tips on how you can make it hassle-free. ACCA will invite you to transfer to membership once your records indicate that you have completed: the ACCA exams the Professional Ethics module (where required) the PER, by recording 36 months' experience in a relevant role, and either your challenge question answers for 13 performance objectives to the satisfaction of your workplace mentor, or you have Performance Objective Exemption as agreed by your gold or platinum ACCA Approved Employer –Trainee Development stream, or you have ‘banked’ your complete and signed-off Student Training Record (STR). If you have met the above criteria, you will be sent an email and a letter inviting you to transfer to membership. To ensure that you receive your invitation, please visit myACCA to check that your contact details are up to date. The majority of transfers are completed quickly and easily, taking approximately 10 days from our receipt of your acceptance. You will be required to reply ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ to the invitation. If you reply ‘NO’ to the invitation, you are expected to provide your reason for not wanting to transfer at this time and give an indication when you think you will want to transfer. If you reply ‘YES’ you are accepting the declaration and agreeing to pay the membership admission fee.
