SAICA members wanting to become US CPAs

SAICA 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.

USCPA NOW

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.
