ICAS Home Institute Representative
As an ICAS member resident in the United States, you are automatically a member of CAW Network USA. If you register with us, you will have access to our fellow institutes’ knowledge base, local events and networking with fellow CAs from around the world based here. There is also an opportunity to get involved with the Board, Chapters and individual events. Newly arrived CAs should make CAW Network USA a first stop as they get used to their new country.
Becoming a US CPA
ICAS has a Mutual Recognition Agreement in pace with AICPA/NASBA, meaning that if a qualified CA wishes to become a US CPA, they need to agree with the local State Board that they qualify. They can then apply to take a single exam covering Legal, Tax and Ethics, rather than the full CPA examinations.
CAW Network USA has launched an online course to help prepare CA’s to take the IQEX exam.
Our Comprehensive IQEX Program
Based on over twenty years of experience in teaching IQEX courses, Henry Zimmer has prepared a Comprehensive IQEX Program that covers everything an eligible professional needs to learn to successfully pass the exam. All participants will receive study notes written in an easy-to-follow conversational style that emphasize the most likely topics tested on the exam.
