Singapore Chartered Accountant Qualification

The Singapore CA Qualification and the Accountant of Today

Singapore’s national chartered accountant qualification is internationally recognised and offers an Asian perspective.  

Accountants are business leaders in demand anywhere in the world.  They have more than just technical knowledge. They have multi-disciplinary skill sets, come from a diversity of academic backgrounds, and provide high value-adding specialised services. With an international outlook, they provide holistic business advice and are the financial backbone of a company. In short, they are trusted advisors, critical to the success of a business.

The Singapore CA Qualification is designed to develop these business leaders.
