ACCA Practicing Certificate Application Procedure

ACCA Practicing Certificate is mandatory if the member of ACCA wishes to carry out public practice or join hands with the firm that is into public practice work. The rules and regulations regarding public practice are clearly stated under ACCA’s Global Practicing Regulations. ACCA members must acquire relevant experience of a certain period to gain an ACCA Practicing certificate or a combination of practicing certificate and audit qualification. ACCA also provides a global practicing license. The members must meet ACCA's practical training requirements and complete a PCTR to obtain a globally portable practicing license.
