Can I rejoin ACCA after 12 years?

Is it possible to regain my membership after it was lapsed? What would I need to do please?

Didn't find your answer?

Hello all,

I'd like to know if I can rejoin ACCA and would be grateful for any information and advices.

I passed all my ACCA exams in 2006 and got my full membership soon after since I already had enough experiences. I was working for a small company at that time and was trained by a small firm before that. Then I moved to corporate environment and life took over. Amidst some personal issues and busy work, my membership had lapsed. ACCA was always in the back of my mind but I didn't manage to rejoin. ACCA membership is not essential for my current role and therefore in a way I wasn't pressued to get it back. 

My current job is still stable and I have no itention of leaving it yet. But my personal circumstances have changed over the last few years and I feel it's time to focus on my qualifications. Does anyone know if it is possible for me to rejoin ACCA and regain my full membership? If so, what would I need to do and how much it would cost me?

Thank you.

Why not ask ACCA directly, they will be best placed to answer!

Bit of a left field thought but maybe the ACCA would have a view?

Have you tried asking the ACC -ah sorry, I see that three completely original individuals saw an opportunity to make that brilliant dig before I got in there....

There's a form on the ACCA website where you can apply to reinstate your membership. You then pay for your subscription and a reinstatement fee (around £50). If your membership lapsed because of unpaid fees, you have to pay those as well (I think).

If you Google 'reinstate ACCA membership' the form's one of the first results.

Exactly, so well deserved opprobrium - not a "dig".

Yes, but when three of you jump in with some lame variation of the same comment in quick succession, it's nothing more than a dog pile. Utterly pointless and solely for the sake of inflating your own egos.

Had to Google what opprobrium means - good word.

I piled on first (at least I did as I composed my message).

On a more serious note, I find it alarming that you can reinstate your membership of the ACCA so easily - especially after such a long time.

To me that rather devalues the membership.

By comparison, CIMA and ICAEW both allow a gap of less than 5 years; beyond that it appears to be discretionary.

A lesson for all would-be posters to consider!
