ACA is the chartered accounting qualification attainable from the Institute of Chartered Accountants inEngland & Wales (ICAEW). ACA offers one of the most advanced learning and professional development programmes in the field of accounting.

The qualification can be attained across different levels and exemption credits can be sought and attained depending on your current qualifications.

Exemptions

For anyone who currently holds some certificates, you may not need to take all the ACCA exams and you could apply for exemptions.

If you have a relevant degree or other professional qualifications, you could get exemptions from the certificate level.

If you have the full AAT qualification, you could get exemptions from 5 units in the certificate level, if you did the tax units as your optional units. But you will need to do the Law exam to complete the certificate level.

View further details and information on exemptions on the ACA website.
