ISCA took a significant step forward towards our goal to enhance international recognition and career portability for our members, providing them with a pathway that enables them to pursue international career opportunities.

ISCA has signed separate Reciprocal Membership Agreements (RMAs) with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS), to establish reciprocal membership for ISCA members. The RMAs and MoUs were signed by Mr Gerard Ee, President of ISCA and Dr Hilary Lindsay, President of ICAEW, and Professor Mark Allison, Executive Director of Education, ICAS separately.
Without having to fulfill additional professional or educational requirements, eligible ISCA members can now attain ICAEW’s Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) designation or ICAS’ CA designation.
To be eligible, the ISCA member must be a Chartered Accountant of Singapore, or CA (Singapore), and has completed the Singapore CA Qualification. The RMAs represent a significant endorsement of ISCA’s professional and ethical standards.
In the current business landscape where organisations are increasingly internationalised, having credentials that are recognised in Singapore and other key financial and business centres will pave the way for our members to pursue greater career opportunities in key financial and business centres around the world.
Reciprocal Access to Events and CPE Courses
ISCA also signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with ICAEW and ICAS respectively today, to explore further collaboration on members’ activities and professional development for their members around the world. These include granting their members mutual access to each institute’s events and continuous professional education (CPE) courses.
With this, ISCA aims to bring greater value to our members, who can now enjoy a wider range of technical resources, networking events and professional development courses.
In the current business landscape where organisations are increasingly internationalised, having access to a wider range of technical resources, networking events and professional development courses will put our members in good stead to achieve their career aspirations, wherever they are.
