Paying fees to ACCA
To remain on the ACCA register you must pay the annual subscription fee each year and all other fees should be paid within one month of the date of invoice.
The annual subscription notice is sent to you each November and your payment should be received by ACCA on or before 1 January. The simplest and quickest way to pay fees is online through myACCA - this allows you to pay ACCA in sterling while receiving details of your payment from your credit card provider in your local currency.
Note: If you are paying online from outside the UK, your credit or debit card must be enabled to make international payments. Please contact your credit or debit card provider to confirm this has been done before making your payment.

Making a Practical Experience Requirement (PER) return - ACCA Qualification students and affiliates only
If you are an ACCA Qualification student or an ACCA affiliate, you must send a PER return to ACCA at least once each year - whether or not you are currently working in a relevant role, if you are a full-time student, if you are unemployed or taking a career break. The quickest and simplest way to make a PER return is online through myACCA and this must be received by ACCA on or before 1 January.
The PER return is designed to help you, and ACCA, track your practical experience and your progress towards gaining ACCA membership. It allows ACCA to help you by developing products and services to support your training and development and it is also a key component of the transfer to membership process.
To make a PER return online or to update ACCA on any PER progress:
- log into myACCA
- select PER return
- complete the online return
- click 'submit'.
If you cannot make your PER return online, you can complete and post the form included in your annual subscription pack. Make sure you use a form of recorded delivery if you want to check that your PER return has been received by ACCA. Please allow five working days for your PER return to be processed. You can check the status of your records by logging in to myACCA .
