Membership Types & Fees

ATAP Membership

Affirmed Members

Membership within ATAP is for those who are self-employed as an independent proprietor or a principal of a corporation they own. The majority of practitioners who apply for membership will be in this category.

Affirmed Members must be self-employed for a minimum of one (1) year as either a tax, accounting or other financial services professional. Affirmed Members are those who have passed the affirmation exam and have received voting rights at the Association of Tax & Accounting Professionals Annual General Meeting(s).

Individuals holding a Public Accounting Licence are not eligible for membership.

We welcome the following individuals to our association as Affiliated Members:

  1. Soon-to-be Affirmed Members just getting started with ATAP – those who have not yet completed the qualifying exam and/or have not yet been self-employed for a year.
  2. Retired Affirmed Members who continue to want to stay connected to our community for its benefits
  3. Individuals who, as part of our professional network, are otherwise engaged in related commercial enterprises related to accounting, bookkeeping, income tax and/or business advisory whose work adds value to our practices as well as to our clients
