    Are the following letters after someone's name recognised in the UK as
    those of a professional accountant?

    MIBA (miba)
    AAIA (aaia)
    AFA

    I have tried searching on these without success.

    Thanks for the thumbs down, there :) It doesn't seem like they're
    that instantly recognisable in the UK.

    From elsewhere I've been assured that:
    AAIA Associate member Association of International Accountants
    AFA Associate member Institute of Financial Accountants

    I don't really know what the hell they are either. Eg do you have to pass
    any exams?

    Lets put it this way.............

    If you want an income reference from an accountant to be accepted by a
    mortgage company it has ot be from one of these:

    Chartered Accountant, English, Scottish. Irish is probably OK as well.
    Chartered Certified Accountant
    CIMA
    CIPFA
    Maybe AAT but I don't know.
