Johannesburg, Thursday, 1 June 2017 – One of the perks of being a Chartered Accountant is the fact that you are able to work anywhere in the world. On a continent where business borders are as fluid as Africa’s, this ability is crucial. These days, more and more people are finding that they need to be able to work across the borders of the 54 countries on the African continent. Complications of language and cultural barriers aside, working in another country becomes difficult if your professional designation is not recognised on par with the professional designation of the country you are working in. This is something that members of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) and the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) no longer need to worry about.
These two professional organisations believe it is vital that their designations are recognised at the same level. To support this principle, the institutions have signed a Memorandum of Recognition (MOR) ensuring mutual recognition of the CA(SA) and CPA designations.
