1. My employee holds an ACCA Qualification. Can he/she practice as a public accountant?
Eligibility criteria for public accountants are determined by ACRA. At the moment there have been no changes to the criteria. As long as ACCA members hold a certificate of registration issued by ACRA, they will be able to practice as public accountants.
2. As an employer, we subsidise the subscription fees of our employees taking the ACCA Qualification. With the ending of the JES, how will the subscription fee structure change?
In the next few months, students will be asked to decide if they wish to be either on the ICPAS Plus or ACCA Only route. Depending on which register they choose, the relevant fee structure will apply.
3. Will my employee still have to fulfill ACCA's Practical Experience Requirement (PER)?
The ACCA PER will not be affected with the end of the JES. ACCA students and affiliates must continue to fulfill all requirements for ACCA Membership, including their performance objectives and work experience.
