ICAEW and Sri Lankan institute forge closer ties

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (ICASL) have sealed an agreement to establish closer working ties with each other.  

The Memorandum of Understanding enables qualified members of either institute to join the other and obtain non-auditing practising rights.

ICAEW president Gerald Russell said the agreement removes barriers across both markets that will enhance the accountancy profession.

The agreement means ICASL members can apply for ICAEW membership after passing the ICAEW’s advanced stage examinations and structured training in ethics programme. ICASL members will be eligible for ICAEW practising certificates on the same basis as ICAEW members.

ICAEW members who have obtained Sri Lankan citizenship or held residency for more than three years are entitled to ICASL membership and practising rights.

“Each institute has the capability to promote the transfer of skills and knowledge between members of both institutes through study tours, seminars, workshops, conferences and other professional development activities,” ICASL president Sujeewa Mudalige said.
