About SAICA & Qualification

The South African Insti­tute of Char­tered Accoun­tants (SAICA) is the fore­most accoun­tancy body in South Africa and one of the lead­ing Insti­tutes in the world. It plays an influ­en­tial role in a highly dynamic busi­ness sec­tor. SAICA offers a wide range of sup­port ser­vices to its mem­bers, so that they, too, can play a key role in the devel­op­ments in our economy.

The CA(SA) pro­fes­sional designation/​qualification ran by SAICA is arguably the most rep­utable and sought after busi­ness pro­fes­sional des­ig­na­tion in South Africa today. All organ­i­sa­tions and busi­nesses need accu­rate finan­cial infor­ma­tion in order to grow and pros­per, and all busi­nesses need accoun­tants. Accoun­tancy is, there­fore, an essen­tial busi­ness process within all organisations.

Suc­ceed­ing at the qual­i­fy­ing exam to become a Char­tered Accoun­tant (CA) is the ulti­mate qual­i­fi­ca­tion to be achieved within the account­ing pro­fes­sion. CAs are well rep­re­sented in the senior man­age­ment and board­rooms of most large South African com­pa­nies, and thus the expec­ta­tion that a busi­ness pro­fes­sional should seek a CA qual­i­fi­ca­tion is very real.

CAs work in all indus­tries, at every level of man­age­ment. They are sought after because of the stan­dard and con­tent of their under­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate qual­i­fi­ca­tions and their com­mit­ment to eth­i­cal stan­dards man­dated through adher­ence to a com­pre­hen­sive code of pro­fes­sional conduct.

The CA des­ig­na­tion pro­vides excel­lent career oppor­tu­ni­ties and finan­cial rewards. It presents you with a wide range of diverse career oppor­tu­ni­ties and will help you achieve a reward­ing career, inter­na­tional recog­ni­tion and the ulti­mate com­pet­i­tive edge in business.
