About Us

About Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand 

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (Chartered Accountants ANZ) represents 131,673 financial professionals, supporting them to lead and make a difference to the businesses, organisations and communities in which they work and live.

Chartered Accountants ANZ promotes the Chartered Accountant (CA) designation and high ethical standards, delivers world class services and lifelong education to members, and advocates for the public good. We protect the reputation of the designation by ensuring members continue to comply with a code of ethics, backed by a robust discipline process. We also monitor CAs who offer services directly to the public.

CAs are known as Difference Makers. The depth and breadth of their expertise helps them to see the big picture and chart the best course of action.

Our flagship CA Program, the pathway to becoming a CA, combines rigorous education with mentored practical experience. Ongoing professional development helps members shape business decisions and remain relevant in a changing world. Chartered Accountants ANZ is the only professional accounting body in Australia approved as a Higher Education Provider by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), Australia’s independent national regulator of the higher education sector.

We actively engage with governments, regulators and standard setters on behalf of members and the profession to advocate boldly in the public good. Our thought leadership promotes and inspires our members to consider wider issues that impact the future of the profession.

Chartered Accountants ANZ is a member of the International Federation of Accountants, the Global Accounting Alliance, and Chartered Accountants Worldwide, linking us into a global community of millions of CAs and accounting students.

We are an associate member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Federation of Accountants, a member of the Confederation of Asian and Pacific Accountants and have a strategic alliance with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Chartered Accountants ANZ was formed on 1 January 2015 through the amalgamation of the former Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants.
