We have been receiving this query again and again since last few days. People ask us all the time about Exemptions in CA after ACCA. So we thought it would be a good time to throw some light on this topic. Before we proceed further in this article we would like to tell you that ICAI, which is the authority of CA qualification and ACCA have not tie-ups till date.
Exemptions in CA after ACCA | 2017-18
Are there any exemptions in CA after ACCA? The answer is NO. Both CA and ACCA are best in class qualifications in the domains of accounting and finance. However, a CA qualification does give you exemptions in few papers of ACCA. But, definitely it is not the other way around. If you get any information about CA exemptions after ACCA, please do not believe it. To the best of our knowledge, there has been any provisions for exemptions in CA after ACCA, as of 31st May 2017.
The good news is, if you already have an ACCA qualification then there is no point of adding an equivalent qualification that has the same stature in the industry. ACCA gives you the global exposure that the CA qualification lacks. If you have an ACCA qualification already then you should not be looking for a CA qualification again, which will make things redundant and unnecessary. However, if you have CA qualification and you are looking for ACCA then it is absolutely okay. At least, you will gain some global exposure.
And finally, with an ACCA qualification you can work anywhere in the commonwealth countries. Since, India is a commonwealth country, your ACCA qualification will be recognized across all industries. You will get the same job opportunities after ACCA as you do after CA. There are no exemptions in CA after ACCA. But again, you don’t need to do a CA after ACCA.
