KUALA LUMPUR, July 15 (Bernama) —2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the relationship between MICPA and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ). Back in 2009, CA ANZ was known as the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA). A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between ICAA and MICPA on February 24, 2009 to collaborate in providing a joint qualifying programme, i.e. the joint MICPA-ICAA Programme.
Through the joint Programme, MICPA conducted ICAA’s Chartered Accountant Program comprising 5 modules in Malaysia, but customised the Taxation module to cover the Malaysian taxation framework, thus making the Programme relevant to the local market. Hence 4 modules would be identical to that offered in Australia and the rest of the world, whilst the Taxation module would be set and marked by MICPA.
