        As a CIMA-qualified, although you are exempted from the CTA in terms of the new SAICA-CIMA Membership Pathway Agreement (MPA), passing the SAICA Board 1/ITC requires up-to-date and very technical knowledge of the following 5 UNISA-aligned CTA modules; and that you take our SAICA Board 1/ITC Exam Preparation Course as below:          

        1.  Advanced & Applied Financial Accounting I (FAC4861/3); 

        2. Advanced & Applied Financial Accounting II (FAC4862/4); 

        3. Advanced & Applied Management Accounting (MAC4861/2);

        4. Advanced & Applied Auditing (AUE4861/2); 

        5. Advanced & Applied Taxation (TAX4861/2); and 

        6. SAICA Board 1/ITC Exam Preparation Course.  

        Item 6: the SAICA Board 1/ITC Exam Preparation Course itself is intensive, assumes full CTA knowledge; and shifts from individual application of modules 1-to-5 as above, to the integrated application as approached in the actual SAICA Board 1/ITC Exam. 

        You are required by the new SAICA-CIMA Membership Pathway Agreement, to pass the SAICA Board 1/ITC exam within a maximum of 2 attempts in any two calendar years. Should you not pass the exam after these attempts, you will be required to go back and do the CTA –thus, forfeiting your claim to the coveted CA(SA) designation under this express route.It is for this reason that we want to prepare you to get it right and pass 1st time in order to avoid being sent back to do the CTA. We therefore, strongly recommend that you enrol with us for the above 6 (5 CTA modules + 1 SAICA Board 1/ITC Exam Preparation Course) and undergo a full 10-12 months of face-to-face classes (Evenings and/or Weekends) in preparation for your SAICA Board 1/ITC Exam.

        Message from an SA Top Dual Designation FD/Group CFO 

        Odoo CMS- Sample image floating

        “...In South Africa, you are expected to be CA(SA) especially to get to FD or CFO position...  CIMA [-on the other hand-] is very focused on management accounting and the day-to-day operations, how to manage your costs and how you strategically put the whole business together. The CA(SA) is very much on the financial reporting side, it will address tax for example -and auditing, so it has a lot to do with your control environment; it gives you some insight in terms of business but ultimately, it’s good to have both because they overlap whilst addressing each other’s weaknesses.”

        Am I Eligible?

        The FAQs below emanate from the above Breakfast show organised by The CharterQuest Institute to respond to student queries about the CIMA-SAICA MPA. At the time of the event, it was not clear how SAICA will deal with certain pertinent questions. So, we provided you our best answers but undertook to confirm certain procedural issues with SAICA - having done so, we hereby publish our updated questions and answers. We hope this page helps you answer your pertinent questions about the agreement and our course structure. You are welcome to double-check our answers with SAICA (to Adrik:[email protected]) before making any final decision.  



        ‘‘it is important for both of us because we’ve got the big number of professionals, mainly Chief Financial Officers in business, and this is where the qualification of a Chartered Accountant and that of a CGMA is very useful in running successful enterprises, to make sure that those CFOs are able to add value in business, and respond to practical things like sustainable growth, issues of avoiding the emergence of downgrades, issues of enhancing good governance, and making sure that corruption does not become an issue where Chartered Accountants and CGMAs have got a presence.’’
