Continuing to drive value through our strategic alliance with ACCA

The CA ANZ and ACCA alliance is two years strong and is delivering member value through joint events and research.

In brief

  • CA ANZ and ACCA members have combined at events in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the UK
  • ACCA has joined the World Congress of Accountants (WCOA) as a gold sponsor
  • Teams have co-located in several markets and CA ANZ collaborates with ACCA for important research

Since commencing our strategic alliance with ACCA in June 2016, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand has delivered valuable benefits to our combined 800,000 strong membership of current and future members from 181 countries.

As part of our continued commitment to leveraging the alliance and delivering value to members, we have embarked on a series of initiatives. Members have networked at events across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the UK. Our organisations have collaborated on substantial research, our teams have co-located across several strategic markets, and ACCA has joined the World Congress of Accountants (WCOA) as a gold sponsor.

We will continue to combine resources to amplify our voice globally and take a leadership position in consolidating the accounting profession.

Member events

 CA ANZ and ACCA members have collaborated at events across Australia New Zealand, Asia, and the UK.

ACCA members attended the launch of our recent ‘A question of ethics’ report across six countries, and several local knowledge sharing and networking events across the regions.

ACCA members were invited to attend the CA ANZ Government Awards in Canberra celebrating the outstanding achievements of public service leaders. Apart from hosting events, we collaborated with ACCA to sponsor some industry functions, including the ASIA Pacific Chairman’s Dinner in Sydney, The Auckland Region Accounting Conference and Deakin University’s Largest Public Lecture of the year in Melbourne.

Teams co-located across strategic markets

 We have co-located CA ANZ and ACCA teams in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and the UK.

Co-location enables our organisations to collaborate and take advantage of the operational efficiencies that come with sharing office space. Also, leveraging the strength of our organisations in various markets will enable us to better serve our members locally and abroad.

Collaborating on research

 Collaborating on research allows our organisations to achieve additional member reach, deeper insights and ultimately benefit the profession.

We have teamed up with ACCA for several research initiatives including a joint survey with International Federation of Accountants (IFA) titled: “G20 Public Trust in Tax”, and research into robotic process automation (RPA), which we are undertaking with KPMG.

RPA is software that can be easily programmed to perform basic tasks and move information across applications just as human workers would. As part of this research, we are surveying Chartered Accountants with experience or knowledge of RPA across some global markets.
