  1. Yaa ryt one of my Aussie fnd told me about CA demand in Australia is very high and high salary package … she is also CA

      • We need to do the CPA however their is exemption to Ca students and indian CAs maybe Indian Ca has to give 2 or 3 papers to get the CPA degree

      • CA is donkey Course

        i don’t know why indian ca were recognised in UAE or dubai……as because indian ca syllabus does not have full set of IFRS in syllabus and also indian CA don’t have experience in IFRS (they have only gained experience in direct/indirect taxation.

        IFRS followed in more than 200 countries including UAE,kuwait, other GCC countries.
        UAE Bank Financial Statements were prepared based on IFRS. UAE Companies should give preference ACCA over Indian CA(which is number Donkey Course)

        ICAI-CA if want to increase members they(ICAI-CA) will ask questions from RTP, past Questions in IPCC/Final Exams……….

        • @vicky There are 196 countries in the world as of today, time is precious my friend, you won’t get a CA degree writing bullshit over here. If you have the capability, clear the exam. ?

  2. What is the salary of ca in UK? ? Which course I need to do to get applicability in UK? ? Or cpa is recognised there also.
