i want to pursue ICAEW based on my ACCA qualification.
But I have taken exemptions/credits in exams of ACCA and passed remaining papers.
So I have qualified ACCA and was also awarded few credits (F1-F9).
would I be still eligible to take credits in ICAEW?May 20, 2020 at 7:24 am
The professional qualifications of ACCA, ICAEW, ICAS and ICAI are equivalent in the UK. If Someone who is a full member of an equivalent professional body can apply for “direct” membership of ICAEW without sitting exams.
Bearing in mind that membership of another professional body will come with membership fees, etc (and ICAEW’s are considerably more than ACCA’s) you should consider carefully why you should need ACA designation when you are already ACCA.May 20, 2020 at 11:02 am
Can I add some points to that as well?
If you are not FCCA, by joining ICAEW will only gives you exemption on some exams. You will still have to sit 3 more if I remember it right, have a trainee contract and also 2 more years additional training experience.
But if you are FCCA (>5 years on full membership), you can join it through the pathway programme given you have filled the form correctly with demonstration of experience.
