About us

Who are we?

Accountancy Europe unites 51 professional organisations from 37 countries that represent 1 million professional accountants, auditors and advisors. We changed our name from the Federation of European Accountants (FEE) at our 30th anniversary celebration (7 December 2016). Accountancy Europe is in the EU Transparency Register (No 4713568401-18).

What do we do?

Professional accountants make numbers work for people. As Accountancy Europe, we translate their daily experience from across Europe to inform the European policy debate. We do this in the areas in which our profession can contribute most, namely:

  • Reporting & Transparency
  • Audit
  • Good Governance & Sustainable Economy
  • Finance & Investment
  • Tax
  • Professional Matters

What do accountants do?

Accountants, auditors and advisors work in diverse capacities: in accountancy firms of all sizes, large and small businesses, governments, non-profit organisations, education, etc. Their expertise spreads widely in areas such as finance, corporate social responsibility, statutory audit, tax and financial advice, HR and legal services, assurance services and consultancy.

Why?

Good decisions start with reliable information. Professional accountants provide trust, integrity and transparency to decision-makers in both the public and private sectors. As professional bodies, our Members ensure the high quality of the work of professional accountants and their ethical behaviour.
