CAPA membership expands

Published date: January 8, 2015

CAPA is delighted to announce some new developments in the CAPA membership.

In recognition of the development and significant role in the Sri Lanka accountancy profession, the Association of Accounting Technicians of Sri Lanka (AATSL) moved from Associate status to being a Member of CAPA. Accounting technicians play a key role on the financial and performance reporting pipeline and is an important part of the accountancy profession, which is an area of interest to CAPA.

In a similar vein, CAPA welcomes the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), a leading qualification and membership body for vocational accountants in the United Kingdom (UK), as an Affiliate. AAT offers a range of qualifications and short recourses to provide people with the practical finance and accounting skills for a variety of finance roles. CAPA is delighted to have AAT in board and believe that we can work together to promote the importance and relevance of accounting technicians across the region.

CAPA is delighted to admit another Affiliate, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA). CIPFA is based in the UK and is the only professional accountancy organisation in the world exclusively dedicated to public finance. CIPFA qualifications offer a foundation for a career in public finance. CIPFA advocates sound public financial management and good governance in the public sector, a position that CAPA strongly supports. CAPA is delighted to have CIPFA on board and looks forward to continuing our focus on improving public sector financial management.
