AAT Business School (The Association of Accounting Technicians)


The Association of Accounting Technicians of Sri Lanka (AAT Sri Lanka) was formed in 1987 on the initiative of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka), based on the findings of a research program on accounting and auditing in the country, carried out by an Asian Development Bank (ADB) team. The master plan for Accountancy Education in Sri Lanka, prepared by the ADB Inception Mission in 1986, emphasized the need for the Technician Level Accounting Personnel.

AAT Sri Lanka was registered under the Companies Act No 17 of 1982 and re-registered under the new Companies Act No 7 of 2007, as a company limited by guarantee. AAT Sri Lanka also has the distinction of being the first Associate Member of the Confederation of Asian and Pacific Accountants (CAPA), a leading network of accounting bodies in the region since September 1989, admitted to full membership in 2015, 26 years after incorporation.

Over the past 30 years, AAT Sri Lanka has provided the country with professionally qualified and technically trained Accounting Technicians, capable of performing all the functions required of them, equipping them with the knowledge and expertise for the 21st century. Moving to its 33rd year, the Institute is gearing itself to meet the toughest demands of a competitive and dynamic environment.
