About us

The Association of British and Irish Accountants in Luxembourg (ABIAL) is an active group for accountancy professionals that was set up in 1980. ABIAL provides support and activities for members and students of the UK accountancy bodies who are resident in Luxembourg. The group offers the opportunity to its members to network, make new business contacts and obtain guidance on local issues. Technical events, aimed at all accountants whether in practice, industry, commerce, general management or the public sector, are organised to gain valuable continuing professional development (CPD).

We are more than happy to welcome any other professional who is interested in our events.
