CPA Ireland and SAIPA sign IPSAS qualification MoU

The Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Ireland (CPA Ireland) and the South African Institute of Public Accountants (SAIPA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the distribution in South Africa of the online CPA Certificate in IPSAS financial reporting.

Launched at the World Congress of Accountants in Rome last November, CPA Ireland certificate in IPSAS financial reporting is a nine modules course which aims to teach accountants the internationally recognised accrual based accounting standards for public sector financial reporting.

The MoU between CPA Ireland and SAIPA builds on a previously signed agreement between the two institutes which agreed to cooperate on matters of mutual interest.

SAIPA CEO Shahied Daniels said: "The adoption of IPSAS is an important decision taken by South Africa. It becomes imperative that people tasked with the implementation, auditing, monitoring compliance of the standards are thoroughly conversant with them.

For SAIPA to partner with CPA Ireland to offer the CPA online Certificate in IPSAS™ Financial Reporting is an important milestone in achieving the required standards".

This is the third partnerships signed by CPA Ireland to deliver the IPSAS program, after having signed MoUs with the Nigerian and Eurasian professions.
