The Singapore CA Qualification

Launched in June 2013, the Singapore CA Qualification (formerly known as the Singapore Qualification Programme or Singapore QP) provides a pathway for the training, qualification and recognition of those aspiring to become Chartered Accountants of Singapore.

The Singapore CA Qualification is one of the key initiatives in our drive to transform Singapore into a leading global accountancy hub for the Asia-Pacific region by 2020. By offering a career pathway to graduates with either accountancy or non-accountancy degrees (as well as qualified candidates from throughout the region), the programme will add diversity and depth to the talent pool of the accountancy profession.

The Singapore CA Qualification is one of the key instruments for developing talent in the accountancy sector for the Singapore and Asia-Pacific marketplace... This marks the beginning of an exciting journey towards making Singapore a significant centre for accountancy talents.

Designed to maximise the opportunities for those seeking global recognition and international portability, the Singapore CA Qualification is based on programmes offered by leading professional accountancy bodies in established jurisdictions such as Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Lending further distinction to the Singapore CA Qualification is the fact that it incorporates the professional accountancy requirements of the Asia Pacific region, taking into account the diverse socio-economic and regulatory profiles of countries in the region. The Singapore CA Qualification also meets international education standards issued by the International Accounting Education Standards Board of the International Federation of Accountants.
