ACA or ACCA
I work for a (small) firm of Chartered Accountants within the tax department. I predominantly work on personal income tax but I also have a small exposure to some CT. I have passed my ATT and CTA qualifications but am now thinking about moving on to doing either ACA or ACCA so that I can have the opportunity in the future of becoming a partner/director of a firm.
My question is simply which option would be best for me, taking into account that I have very limited knowledge/experience of the 'accounts side' of things.
- Is one qualification tougher than the other?
- Would I be able to claim any exemptions from any of the papers due to my current qualifications?
- Am I barking mad? etc etc
Any comments gratefully received...
