ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Exam Aim

To apply relevant knowledge, skills, and exercise professional judgement in analysing, evaluating, concluding and reporting on the assurance engagement and other audit and assurance issues in the context of best practice and current developments.

P7 is one of four Options papers. You need to complete two Options papers as part of ACCA’s exam requirements to achieve ACCA membership and become a professional accountant.

UK and Irish qualifications

Should you wish to practise as a registered auditor within the UK and/or Ireland (obtain the audit qualification/audit practising certificate), you must attempt the P2 UK/Irish and P7 UK/Irish papers from June 2011 onwards. This is not a retrospective ruling, so any International papers you have already passed will be unaffected by this ruling.

All UK and Irish professional accountancy bodies are governed by the requirements of the Statutory Audit Directive (SAD). In order to comply with the requirements of SAD– and to practise as an auditor – certain elements of UK/Irish legislation and regulation should be examined.

The revised Papers P2 (UK/IRL) and P7 (UK/IRL) fully meet regulatory and business environment requirements for those wishing to obtain the UK/Irish audit qualification and hence practise as a registered auditor in the UK/Ireland.
