Welcome to the Association's local site for Balkan countries





The Association of "Certified Public Accountants International", founded in 1979 was incorporated in London in 1984 and is a leading international accountancy body. Prior to the incorporation of the Association no professional accountancy body existed for the specific purpose of providing an international organisation for accountants.

The Association though having an international concept, nonetheless sees itself subject to national requirements in that while offering throughout the world a uniform examination of the highest standard, it does become necessary to ensure that the examinations and studentship requirements are such as to support the development of the accountancy profession and the national accountancy body in the country in which it examines; thus providing the indigenous accountant with both a national and an international accountancy qualification.

The Association is therefore not in competition with national accountancy bodies but complementary thereto and seeks their closest co-operation and understanding.
