Finance and Accountancy Careers Content Blocks
Incompetence can always eventually work
The calibre of individuals entering icaew is much higher than acca. Thats an undeniable fact. This is clear to see as the big 5 choose icaew over acca to recruit and train graduates from the top universities. The actual exams the vert much equivalent. But its not about the standard of the exams but the quality of the students behind each institute. Corporare board level finance directors are much more often icaew over any other qualification. The facts speak for themselves. The acca's in this post are denying the obvious. Acca's should focus on improving their technical and communication skills rather than wasting time on a fruitless argument.
Shut up you absolute melt
ACA's earn £150,000 a year and have a fast track joint path with the CIOT to gain the CTA CHARTERED TAX ADVISER qualification by replacing the Business Planning: Taxation ACA paper with often the "Small Owner Managed Businesses" CTA paper.
The ACCA had 176,000 candidates in December 2019 and most the papers had a 30% to 40% pass rate compared with 75% to 92% for ACA ICAEW.
The ACA is more prestigious with most of the FTSE firms having ACAs and hardly any ACCAs.
