The Singapore qualification programme: transitional arrangements

The launch of the Singapore Qualification Programme (Singapore QP) in June 2013 is one of the key initiatives in transforming Singapore into a leading global accountancy hub. 

ACCA signed a memorandum of understanding with the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC) and the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accounts (ISCA) in October 2013 that will affirm the intention to work towards a reciprocal membership agreement (RMA) between ACCA and ISCA that will administer the Singapore QP. Details on the RMA will be announced in due course.

From now till then, transitional arrangements have been agreed upon to allow for ACCA members, affiliates and students to become Chartered Accountants of Singapore (CA (Singapore)).

More information in the form of FAQs (jointly drafted by ACCA, SAC and ISCA) and a transitional arrangements infographic can be accessed via ‘Related documents’, as well as on the SAC website
