The Royal Dutch Professional Association of Accountants (NBA) is the organisation established by law that is charged, among other things, with promoting the good professional practice of its members (chartered accountants and accounting consultants).


The NBA helps accountants fulfil their crucial role in society, now and in the future.
The NBA is the public-law organisation that serves the interests of society and the profession as the representative of the entire accounting profession in the Netherlands. The NBA thus forms the bridge between professionals and society.


All accountants in the Netherlands are registered in the NBA’s accountant register. Accountants work in public practice, for the government, as internal auditors and in the management of organisations. They form a broad, diverse professional group of over 21,000 professionals with common rules of conduct. Integrity, objectivity, expertise and care, confidentiality and professional conduct are essential values for every accountant.


The accountant has a legally protected title because of his or her crucial role in society. The NBA protects the two titles that accountants can use (RA and AA) and promotes good professional practice. It does this by drawing up and maintaining clear rules of conduct and professional rules for all accountants, by means of testing and by offering life-long learning programmes. The professional organisation monitors the quality of the accounting profession and stimulates the development of the field. The NBA also ensures that the accountancy profession makes its voice heard clearly on important national and international stages.
