We are very excited to welcome CPA Australia onboard.
With over 166,000 members, CPA is in fact the largest professional accounting body in Australia and one of the largest in the world. We have offices in 19 countries, and members in over 100 different countries and regions working in key economic hubs such as Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Zurich, Geneva, New York and London.
CPA Australia is a member of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), and is one of the designated assessment authorities for accountants intending to apply for migration to Australia.
The Dubai branch was established within the DMCC Freezone in November 2018, and our newest branch in Abu Dhabi was established in 2020.
A wide range of professional development resources is available to CPA Australia members and during the course of the year, local divisions and branches deliver a strong suite of training programs and conferences, designed to support, inform and maintain currency for our members as they progress through their careers.
CPA Australia also works with business and government to design and deliver tailored training programs for their finance and accounting staff. In 2020 CPA Australia began its partnership of this kind in the UAE with Abu Dhabi Health Services (SEHA), delivering a comprehensive finance training suite for their finance teams across their Abu Dhabi locations.
We look forward to working with the Australian Business Group and its members in Abu Dhabi as we continue to support CPAs in across the UAE region.
