Accountancy Europe (formerly Federation of European Accountants - FEE) unites 51 professional organisations from 37 countries that represent close to 1 million professional accountants, auditors and advisors. Professional accountants make numbers work for people. As Accountancy Europe, we translate their daily experience from across Europe to inform the European policy debate.
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.
