Membership renewal for the new 21/22 financial year are now due. 

What does membership renewal involve?

To renew your Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand membership, you must log in to your My CA account, click 'Renew my Membership' in the top left-hand corner of your homepage and complete the following steps:

  • Step 1: Review and confirm your details, such as your name, address, contact numbers and current employment.
  • Step 2: Complete your Mandatory Notifications, a series of declarations to help you satisfy your member obligations. These declarations may include licences, other memberships and regulatory obligations as applicable to you. They also cover continuing professional development (CPD) hours.
    Mandatory Notifications are an integral part of the membership renewal process. They help us continue to protect the profession by ensuring our members comply with the rigour and high ethical standards which underpin the designations.
  • Step 3: Make payment of your membership fees. You will not be required to make payment if your employer has notified us they are covering your membership fees.

Have 2021/22 membership fees increased?

Yes. As a forward-looking professional body, Chartered Accountants ANZ provides valued training, resources, advocacy, and personal and professional support, uniquely equipping you to chart the best course of action. 

The steadfast brand and reputation of your CA designation, together with dedicated programs and connections, gives you the backing you need to make a real difference to clients, businesses and communities. 

After holding fees steady during an unpredictable FY20/21, the FY21/22 fee structure has a modest uplift of 2.5%, equating to an increase of A$18 / NZ$20 for full standard membership. This change aligns with consecutive CPI growth and our continued investment in the future of the profession. 

The FY21/22 fees for a full standard membership is AU$753 / NZ$818 (including GST where applicable). 

We continue to extend the option of quarterly payments for membership renewal as well as a range of concessions and wellbeing support.
