OUR KEY STAKEHOLDERS
A key goal of our Strategic Plan is to create value for three important stakeholder groups: our members, industry partners and the government.
As the national accountancy body, we are committed to improving the standing and standard of the accountancy profession locally and globally, serving our members as an advocate and partnering them in their professional journey.
Our members are at the heart of what we do and we will continue to focus on delivering quality products and services that are of value to them.
By equipping our members with relevant skills and knowledge, they will be able to effectively support the businesses they serve, and ultimately become the preferred choice for employers and companies in Singapore. This in turn will help boost the credibility of the profession here and support the government’s vision of transforming Singapore into a global accountancy hub by 2020.
We support over 28,000 members who come from both the Professional Accountants in Practice and Professional Accountants in Business segments of the profession. Leveraging our technical knowledge, skills and expertise, we strive to equip our members professionally, providing them with access to technical resources and be an advocate for their professional interests.
Key to achieving this, is our ability to understand the needs of our members and develop meaningful initiatives. The globally recognised Chartered Accountant of Singapore or CA (Singapore) designation launched in 2013 is a key initiative to support the professional growth of our members. It is a recognised mark of excellence across all aspects of business – one that plays an important role in supporting the development of Singapore’s economy.
ISCA aims to provide companies with a pool of competent and trusted accountants.
This requires us to develop strong engagement and collaboration with partners in the accountancy sector. As such, ISCA continues to develop and strengthen relationships with key stakeholders in the accounting industry, such as major accounting firms, and small and medium practices. We also continue to nurture our relations with leading international agencies, recognised professional bodies and academic institutions.
Government agencies such as the Ministry of Finance, Singapore Accountancy Commission, and Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority lead in the development of Singapore as a global accountancy hub. As such, it is important that ISCA strengthens its working relationships with these agencies to develop the accountancy profession.
To successfully deliver value to our stakeholders, ISCA also strives to achieve organisational effectiveness and build a dynamic work culture to execute our strategic priorities.
