ICAN Stops Direct Conversion Of Foreign Qualifications by toptop: 9:02am On Nov 09, 2012
During the 50th induction ceremony of the institute the president informed the audience that the Council members of ICAN has hence forth decided to disallow direct conversion of foreign student qualifications as was formally obtained. He stated that they will now be subjected to qualifying examinations. Please what does this imply?

All you guys preparing for ACCA and CIMA, just bear in mind that there is no more shortcut to ACA. You will still have some exams to pass.
Na wah oh!

It is a welcome idea. Since the foreign professionasl does not allow ACA direct membership why does they need to be given easy access to ACA.

It's all part of a strategic brand balance and maintaining relevance in the global industry.

They are all governed by IFRS and so they must write. I just hope this will not jerk up the
registration, exemption and examination fees to be paid in lieu of next diet examination.

You are wrong!!! ICAN is not becoming a joke. It is understandable that they have to protect their turf.

Holders of foreign qualifications will only write papers that are peculiar to the Nigerian environment....eg Tax, Law, etc.

ACCA is better dan ICAN. Dts sumtin we should nt doubt. ICAN members are allowd to write ACCA exams from d professional module. Where will an ACCA member start from wit d calibre of dt qualification.
Re: ICAN Stops Direct Conversion Of Foreign Qualifications by omosexy1: 12:31pm On Nov 09, 2012
ICAN is scared of becoming irrelevant and losing revenue to foreign qualifications. Already employers are accepting these same qualifications as par with ICAN. The move is a welcome development. However, I wonder what it would do to make ICAN relevant.

a very good move by ICAN. 100% supported

I expect ANAN to take advantage of this situation. All those with ACCA need is the ability to set up there own firms in Nigeria. With ANAN membership, they can do that. Imagine the credibility that they will gain when they have a huge number of ACCA members joining them. In a few years, they will be at par with ICAN.

Until ANAN becomes a member of IFAC, there is no way ACCA will form a partnership with ANAN.

This is a very nice move by ICAN. The Reputation Capital of ICAN has just increased. Congrats to all the ACAs and FCAs

I support the ban on conversion of foreign qualifications. A lot of people just brandish foreign certificates that can't be defended. At times, the process of obtaining those qualifications is questionable

This is a welcome development as it enhances the credibility of ICAN at global level.As per ANAN, they should try and get the registered with IFAC.

I take it that you don't know the foreign certificates being mentioned here. Because if you do, there is no way you will question their authenticity.
To me, I see this move as a way of aligning owners of foreign certificates with happenings in the Nigeria accounting sphere. Hence courses like
Taxation and Public Sector Accounting will be made prerequisites.
