Have you tried to find a chartered accountant? Like any professional decision, it’s critical you find one who understands your business and your business’s priorities. But a chartered accountant can do more than just your tax — a qualified chartered accountant has the skills to be a partner in your business, to help you manage complex issues and to help your business grow. But what do those two post-nominal letters — CA — really mean?
Those two letters signify an individual has undertaken significant training and study beyond an undergraduate accounting degree. It also means that individual is a member of a professional body which ensures the integrity and ongoing expertise of the industry and its members. A chartered accountant is an expert in their field and must maintain a high level of skill and knowledge.
Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand manages and issues the ‘Chartered Accountant’ designation. Accountants are only granted the designation after earning a postgraduate qualification and three years of approved practical experience. This combination of study and practical experience is designed to go beyond pure technical accounting and equip chartered accountants with skills in communication, ethics and the broader business and finance industries.
