ICAEW is one of the most prestigious accountancy body in the world. The papers of Professional level of ICAEW are however, not conducted in Pakistan. There are however pathways and exemptions available for ACCA Affiliates, ACCA members and ICAP members to claim exemptions from ICAEW and thus become ICAEW members.

Articleship is the necessary practical training required by CA inters as well as ACCA affiliates. Articleship consists of 3 years of training.

CAT is not required for CA from ICAP. You can get registered as an ICAP student right after completing your Intermediate.

odyssee, if we do ACCA from Pakistan How can we apply for ICAEW in England? What about Internship there?

- Odyssee - 07-12-2009 10:59 PM

pls visit the following link

I must mention that at the moment, it is next to impossible for ACCA Affiliates to get an ICAEW training contract from any audit firm in Pakistan.

what about studying CA-ICAEW in England and doing internship in England?

- Odyssee - 07-13-2009 03:55 AM

i guess that foreign students of ICAEW would face the same difficulty in getting a training contract in UK, as faced by the foreign students of ACCA in UK.

Dear bilal,
there is no need to do ACCA befor CA- ICAEW. You should go for CFAB and then CA- ICAEW. you can complete CFAB in maximum one year & then 6 papers will be exempted from CA-ICAEW.
IF u are interested plz register with in one week.
feel free to contact for further quries.

are the papers of the Application Level of the Professional stage of ACA held in Pakistan?
what i have heard is that only the papers of the Advanced Stage of ACA are held in Pakistan. so if a person who claims exemption of 6 papers of ACA through CFAB will have to attempt the remaining 6 papers of the Professional stage in UK. Is my info correct?

that post is in english, so there shouldnt be much difficulty in understanding it. anyways in simple , ICAP members no longer need to undergo the 2 yr training requrement to become ICAEW members.

tons of ACCA's are flowing to the uae, so u can make out its scope now and what it will be like in near future.
