Chartered accountancy is a professional degree course which offers huge scope for the aspirants. After becoming a CA,
a person can choose to either be employed with a firm as an employee or they can choose to open their own private practice.
A person can apply for membership either by passing all three levels of examinations prescribed by
Institute of Chartered Accountants
of India and completing three years of practical training or by availing themselves of exemptions under
mutual recognition agreements
The scope is unlimited, though we have mentioned a very few amongst them below
- CA's can choose to set up their own independent practice and develop their clients on merit.
- They can apply for job at an existing firm of Chartered Accountants.
- They can offer their services in the field of capital market.
- A qualified Chartered Accountant can join the Government Service, Public Sector or even in the Private Sector.
- Institute of CA of India is also well recognized abroad like in England, Wales and Australia so one can even practice in these countries as well.
- It is not necessary that a CA has to work only on number crunching and excel sheets. A CA employed with a firm can also contribute towards decision making and enhancement of profits for the firm.
As per a report by the Economic Times, there is a huge demand for CA’s in the manufacturing and financial services sectors

- CA is emerging as a good career option for women as it allows work to be done at one's own pace and time, and, also allows one to control the money flow. Besides, a CA is free to take break in his / her profession (as stated earlier).
- According to TN Manoharan, former ICAI president, for 50 years till 1999, the number of women CA's in country was 8%. In the past decade, the numbers grew phenomenally, and women constituted 16% of the nearly 1, 70,000 CAs in India. "The major push came from parents, who earlier discouraged daughters from private practice. More private companies and MNCs are hiring CAs and early entry through CPT, post-class 12, have allowed them to complete their CA before their parents get them married," says Manoharan.
Currently ICAI has MOUs with following professional accounting bodies:
- Accounting and Auditing Standards Board of Bhutan, Bhutan (signed on 22 November 2013)
- The Vietnam Association of Certified Public Accountants, Vietnam
- Saudi Organization for Certified Public Accountants (SOCPA), Saudia Arabia (since 2014 for a period of 3 years
- Higher Colleges of Technology, UAE (signed on 4 January 2011)
College of Banking and Financial Studies, Oman

After CPT IPCC, Article ship/ Training under a Practicing C.A will be for 3 years and CA Final are there. This is like four stage procedure.
The Chartered Accountancy examinations are divided into three levels. They are
- Common Proficiency Test (CPT)
- Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC)
- Final Examination 
CA Final Examination
CA Final Examination is the last and final level of Chartered Accountancy Examinations. It is considered as one of the toughest exam in the world. Any person who has passed both the groups of IPCC, during the last six months of articleship can take the Final Examination. This exam consists of two groups of four subjects each.
- Paper 5 : Advanced Management Accounting
- Paper 6 : Information Systems Control and Audit
- Paper 7 : Direct Tax Laws

ICAI conducts CPT exams in June and December, IPCC and Final examinations in May and November each year.
With effect from 1 August 2012 onward, CPT is exempted for the following class of Individuals
Those Candidates who are exempted from clearing CPT Exam  can also directly register for articleship without clearing IPCC Group 1 as is the case with those candidates who have registered for the CA Course through the CPT Route.
The second method of obtaining membership is through mutual recognition agreements or MRAs. ICAI has entered into MRAs with several institutes globally, of equivalent standing, to enable members of those institutes to acquire membership of ICAI and to enable the members of ICAI to gain membership of its counterpart in other country. This is done by granting some exemptions in the regular scheme of examination and training.
ICAI currently has MRAs with following professional accounting bodies:
ICAI is also in process of negotiating MRAs with
Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants and
Certified General Accountants Association of Canada
