Through the AIA, you may easily get membership of HKICPA

You may choose AIA which is a bit easier than that of ACCA

The Ranking of AIA and ACCA in UK is 5th and 4th respectively.

Association of International Accountants (AIA) that seems to be a biteasier to qualify as a professional accountant. Through the AIA, youmay get membership of HKICPA by

a. passing ONLY ONE MODULE OF Module B (Financial Management) &

Currently, candidates of accounting graduates have to attend 4 modules workshps and pass the 4 module exams.

b. final examination of the QP &

c. passed the Institute's aptitude tests &

d. pass the workshops of Modules A, C & D only.

It seems that it's a bit beneficial for current members of AIA to qualify in HKICPA.

Below is for your information only.

Body: Association of International Accountants (AIA)
Recognition: Mutual Examination Paper Exemptions
Status as of 19 May 2008: MEPE agreement signed
Deadline for membership application: Nil

New agreement for mutual examination paper exemption (MEPE) takes effect from 1 June 2008 to 31 May 2013.

AIA members applying for the Hong Kong Institute of CPAs membership must meet the following criteria:


1. You hold an accounting or non-accounting degree accredited or recognised by the Institute;
2. You have passed the 16-paper AIA Qualifying Examination in Hong Kong or the U.K.;
3. You have completed and passed the workshops of Module A (FinancialReporting), Module B (Financial Management), Module C (Auditing andInformation Management) and Module D (Taxation) of the Institute'sQualification Programme (QP)*;
4. You have passed the module examination of Module B (Financial Management) of the QP*;
5. You have passed the final examination of the QP*;
6. You have passed the Institute's aptitude tests on Hong Kong law and Hong Kong taxation; ...

I am here just to analyse the facts :
1. through AIA, candidates may exempt 3 modules examinations (published in Aplus) passing rates around 50% - 65% of the four modules.

2. the passing rate of module workshop is disclosed to be around 95% and or more. In that sense, a candidate who is willing (actively) to take part in discussion in workshop, is very difficult to get failed.
By September 2010, assessment (marking for candidates) in workshops would be removed, meaning that each candidates are only requried to attend the workshops only. The assessments would entirely fall on the module examinations and the final examination only.

Does it beneficial to candidates, through AIA, to pass the QP in terms of minimisation of workload and pressure in preparing the module exams.

If candidates consider that attempt the 4 module workshps and sit for the 4 module exams are OK to themselves and/or even better than through the channel of AIA, their perceptions are respected.

Roads are open and freely chosen by those who are interested in.

嘩, Camson.. 你咁清楚既? :roll:

不過, 我有幾個問題想問吓:

1) 係UK, 排第1至3位既係邊啲?
2) 係HK, AIA出名啲還是ACCA出名啲?

我就成日見ACCA賣好多廣告及搞好多function去推廣佢自己, 且我聽人考的會計試通常都是HKICPA, 其次是ACCA.

如那些有Non-Accounting Degree既人, 亦可以報讀Postgraduate diploma in Accounting, 咁樣才有資格去讀HKICPA的Module及考試... 我個人認為, 如有魄力及信心係1至2年內讀完呢個Postgraduate diploma, 呢個係一個很好的選擇, 比考ACCA還好.

入呢行做真係唔容易, 一來要挨得. 二來要考哂啲考及有足夠的工作經驗, 而且要開好多OT.

Wiily, 這樣說唄, 咱聽說有兩, 仨位老哥就是考ACCA的, 考到他們想放棄的最後一刻才成功, 但AIA, 就很少有這樣的故事, 成功率應高一些吧!

beaniebean, 排第1的應該是ICEAW, The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, 至於其餘的就不清楚了o

在以往約在1973年開始, 香港會計司公會是沒有自个的考試的, 它就依賴着ACCA的, 如果學生考獲ACCA會員的資格, 他/她就可成為香港會計司公會的會員了, 叁拾年了, 當然是ACCA出名啲, 但現在變了, ACCA跟AIA都相信會慢慢淡出香港會計界的舞臺了, 尤以ACCA為甚o

現在香港所有會計專业的大學畢业生都集中考香港會計司公會的QP了, 餘下的, 非學位持有者, 就是ACCA跟AIA或其他類似機構競爭的對象了, 由此, 在考慮到大學教育的普及化後, 就不難推想出ACCA跟AIA或其他類似機構未來的前景, 又為何, 如你所說的, "ACCA賣好多廣告及搞好多function去推廣佢自己" 了o
