Employers

Our members working for SMEs play increasingly high-profile leadership and business management roles, or extend their responsibilities outside mainstream finance.

We have a range of professional qualifications designed specifically with SMEs and SMPs in mind. If you’re a finance director or senior finance manager working for an SME, or if you’re an accountant working in practice encouraging relevant employees in your finance team to train for one of these qualifications, will:

  • Boost loyalty levels and improve retention rates
  • Improve productivity
  • Increase your finance team’s capacity
  • Embed a culture of professionalism
  • Enhance commercial awareness and customer focus

If you are a business owner or manager without a dedicated finance team these qualifications provide entry-level grounding in finance essentials for those employees who take care of your ledgers, banking or payroll.
