Advice on becoming an Accountant in Ireland

    Hello all,

    I'm looking for some advice on how a non-Irish resident can become a chartered accountant. The person has a Masters Degree in Accounting and Finances from a Portuguese university, but I can't find much info on how can she take the leap to Ireland and get her qualifications recognized.

    Would she need to start as a trainee in any company and do the ACCA exams? What steps does she need to take to become an accountant here?

    Any help is appreciated! :)

    ACCA = Chartered Certified Accountant
    ACA = Chartered Accountant.

    From a terminology perspective the ACA exams are for the chartered route with ACCA being the certified route.

    Difference? None other than which ever one you are a member of, you will think is better.

    Steps required. 3-3.5 years approved training and pass a series of exams along with recording experience Which wil need to be signed off by your training supervisor
