    Please note. If you are taking multiple course exams, such as our combined courses, you will need a CBA and AAT registration for each level of the course.

Payment Options

Single Payment: You have the option to pay the entire course fee in one full payment.

Spread the Payments: For some courses, we offer the flexibility to spread the cost of your tuition over several months. The course details will specify the monthly rate and the maximum duration for payments. For instance, if a course is priced at £500 with a payment plan of £100 deposit and £100 for 4 months, the total amount payable for the course remains £500, spread over a maximum period of 5 months. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 0%

The 0% Payment Plan is an internal arrangement offered by McArthurMorgan, without the involvement of any external financial providers. This option is exclusively available for the tuition fees of McArthurMorgan courses.

*Correct at time of publication. CBA assessment and AAT registration fees are subject to change. Visit the AAT website for more information.
