Who is Chartered Accountant?

Any individual who is a member of the relevant professional accounting body of his/her nation is a Chartered Accountant. To be a member and designate himself/herself as a Chartered Accountant, he/she has to undergo membership qualification course offered by the relevant institute. In India this governing body or institute is called Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, often abbreviated as ICAI. Indian Chartered Accountancy course is the course offered by ICAI which includes a 4.5 years package of both theoretical and practical education. With this period one is required to sit three different levels of examination and undergo rigorous practical training (aka Articleship Training) for 3 years.

The Indian Chartered Accountancy course is designed in such a way that any individual undergoing this course and qualifying as a chartered accountant becomes expert in various fields such as accountancy, finance, audits, business laws and taxation related matters.

With this knowledge and experience various career paths open for a Chartered Accountant.
