The Accountants and Auditors Association in the United Arab Emirates gives considerable attention and exerts ceaseless efforts towards developing the accounting profession which enjoys such great importance in supporting the investment and economic climate in the UAE. Despite being similar to other professions in terms of its role in the society, the accounting profession is still different from such other professions in terms of its rules and practices. Accounting is a term with a purpose to measure the financial position and the results of the economic operations and activities, in addition to furnishing decision-makers with suitable data. From the very beginning of 1960s, and for many reasons, questions were raised on the role of accounting in the economic activity and the role of accountants in the society. Those who areinterested in the financial and economic affairs in the industrial countries have made many questions wondering about this role, while these questions have left serious effects on theaccounting profession and the accountants’ work as well, which has led to review conducting reassessment of the role of the accountant in the society, within the profession itself. The professional accounting societies and institutes have thus expanded in the developed countries where special experienced and knowledgeable committees have been formed to describe this role. In recognition of the effective role of this profession, the Accounting and Auditors Association was established under the ministerial resolution No. (227) of 1997 in an aim to develop the profession and upgrade it as per the best international practices in this field.
