The Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants' (ISCA) international outlook and connections are reflected in its membership of regional and international professional organisations like the ASEAN Federation of Accountants, Chartered Accountants Worldwide and the International Federation of Accountants.
ASEAN Federation of Accountants
The ASEAN Federation of Accountants (AFA) was established in 1977, to serve as the umbrella organisation for the national accountancy bodies of the Association of South East Nation (ASEAN).
ISCA is one of the founding member bodies, together with Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand. Presently, the AFA membership comprises all 10 ASEAN member countries.
With ISCA's admission as a full member of Chartered Accountants Worldwide in 2017, ISCA is now part of the global family of Chartered Accountancy institutes that uphold the highest technical and ethical standards. Together, we support, develop and promote the role of Chartered Accountants as trusted business leaders, decision-makers and advisers.
Chartered Accountants Worldwide brings together members of leading institutes to create a community of over 1.7 million Chartered Accountants and students in more than 185 countries. It is committed to promoting the expertise and skills of Chartered Accountants and the value they can offer to businesses, organisations, individuals and communities around the world.
The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) is the global organisation for the accountancy profession. It is committed to protect the public interest by developing high-quality international standards, promoting strong ethical values, encouraging quality practice and supporting the development of all sectors of the profession worldwide.
As a member of IFAC, ISCA abides by IFAC standards to lead, develop and support accountancy professionals and to protect the public interest.
The Institute of the International Innovation Network (IIN) was formed in 2002 and comprises of national accounting institutes in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas. IIN seeks to stimulate innovation and ensure quality in the products and services for the benefit of the global accounting profession.
The Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) became the 18th member of IIN in 2009. ISCA’s inception into this prestigious global network signals recognition of the Institute’s stature by a worldwide network of major accountancy bodies.
