Dear Friend,

Accounting and B&f are children of the same mother but with different attitude. The professional exam for banking and finance is CIBN.However if you have intention of expanding this coast and become an accountant, you can choose to do it. The advantage is that you have added another profession entirely to your career development. My own blood brother red banking and finance ,and latter wrote ICAN. Today is a chief Accountant of a notable company. He wouldn't have enjoyed that if he stick to Banking and finance degree alone.
I hope this answer your questions?

As the revenue from oil and gas dwindles, there will be aggressive drive for internally generated revenue. While this portends a difficult time for companies and individuals on tax related issues, its a great opportunity for non client centric consultants and some unscrupulous regulators to exploit the innocence and ignorance of Tax payers.

Hello @Esoboy,

You need to know if your school is accredited by ICAN. What is the name of your school? If it is accredited, you will start from application level with 4 papers viz; Perfomance management,Financial reporting, Mgt Gov and ethics, & Public sectors accounting and finance. However, since you intend to write November, you will start by doing student registration. You can pay at any bank, then a month after your student reg number will come out.after this you will applied for exemption and made some payments.
For recommended text book, if you are in lagos, you can buy books like Advanced mgt acctng i.e for performance mgt, Financial reporting made simple by KASMIR, and for Mgt Gov and ethics you will have o use study pack. For PSAF not recommended text book of any such because International public sector accounting standard(IPSAS) frequently changes.
I hope this answer your question.

You can call me on 080279276907 IN CASE YOU ARE NOT CLEAR.

pls,I'm an undergraduate studying economics in one of the state universities and I was wondering if I could sit for ICAN now or do I have to wait till after graduating
Re: Ask Me Any Question At All As Regards ICAN Examinations & Prospect Of Accountant by zezebabyxoxo: 12:36am On Apr 04, 2015
Good day. I am economics undergraduate and I plan on writing ACCA this June. I know it is not the same as I CAN. I was just hoping you have some necessary information.
Does having ACCA put you at a disadvantage when compared to ICAN?
ACCA has some mandatory work experience requirements, would employers still recognise you as an accountant if you have passed all your exams but you have not completed the work related requirements?
What are the real prospects of ICAN holders because I see some people with ICAN and they are not really doing much with themselves. I mean no offence, but this exams takes a high level of commitment.
Re: Ask Me Any Question At All As Regards ICAN Examinations & Prospect Of Accountant by isobayor: 1:31pm On Apr 05, 2015
Hello All,

As an undergraduate of economics or whatever, you can start ICAN but through Accounting Technician scheme of West Africa(ATSWA). You can start that with your O level certificate.That examination have stages.A fter that ,then you will proceed to Middle level of ICAN professional exams.

@Zezebabayxoxo,
I am an ACCA lecturer too because I am a member as well. You cant start ACCA with your O level too .starting from the scratch F1.
Truly speaking you cant compare ACCA with ICAN when we talk of international recognition, at least for now. But in Nigeria today, ICAN and ACCA is at par. But recently, ICAN have started gaining international recognition. ICAN had an MoU with Institute of Chartered Accountants of Englands and Wales(The institute that champions ACCA). The agreement was that ICAEW designed new ICAN syllabus and study pack, so with that ICAN will be recognized by foreign countries. Infact, if you pass ICAN with this new syllabus, you will get ICAEW certificate without exams(Please note that will be effective after all Mou fully implemented). I t is because of that ,that ICAN now make it compulsory for ACCA holdrrs to write some papers before they get ICAN certificate. Prior before this time, With ACCA you can get ICAN certificate without any exams. Presntly, if you are ICAN associate member, you are expected to write 5 papers in ACCA before you are certified.

For your second question that many ICAN members don't get better job.You are absolutely correct, but that could not be traced to the profession but the NIgeria economy. This is a country that qualified medical doctors and Barristers struggle to earn a living. However, there are prospect for Accountant in this country aside from looking for while collar jobs. You can be a lecturer, you can be a consultant and you can still be under a copany employment at the sametime. Just like me, I am an employee in a company, at the sametime I am a lecturer and a consultant.

As for minimum working experience required by ACCA, please note that ICAN also required minimum of 36 months experience as well. But there are ways to work around it. Just pass the exams first then you can reach me on 08079276907 OR iso_bayor@yahoo.com

Thanks for your concern. Please what advice do you have for an engineering graduate currently working in a bank. I am torn between going for an online overseas MBA and enrolling for ICAN. I have really lost interest in engineering and would love to build a career in finance.
Kindly advise accordingly as I am really confused about my next career path.. Thanks once again..

Dear Friend,

I remembered my best lecturer during ICAN programme is an Architect. He was so good in Financial reporting that you have to mention his name in the first 10 best financial reporting lecturers in Nigeria. Being and Engineer or Even a medical doctor does not deprive you opportunity to be an accountant. All you need is to start from the first stage(skill). Another advantage is that if you start from the scratch, it will be easier for you to cope at advanced level compare to those that got exemption in some subjects.However, I don't think ICAN will be a distraction to your online program,it depends on how you strategised yourself. If you are in Lagos, anytime you want to start you can contact me. I will introduce you to Tutors centre that can take you through foundational basis of accounting.

Re: Ask Me Any Question At All As Regards ICAN Examinations & Prospect Of Accountant by isobayor: 8:00pm On Apr 06, 2015
Yes It is true that federal poly idah was accredited.With this, You just need to write 2 stages ,,Meaning that within one year you can become a qualified accountant. You will need up to 120k to write the first stage...this comprises of student registration fee,exemption fee,examination fee and subscription fee. However for the last stage you only needed like 55k ..,,

@Dorcas

I will advice you to start now with your OND certificate. If it is OND in accounting,you wil start from ATS 3 and with that you will get exemption in all first stage subjects in professional exams. Meaning that you will write just 2 stages in professional level. Also, if you pass ATS, You will get a certificate for that because ATS is just an affiliated institute to ICAN. It is own by Accounting bodies of west Africa(ABWA). So it is advisable for you to start now.

How can yOu pass performance management and PSAF?

Well there is no secret aside from timely and adequate preparation. You don't just prepare for ICAN but you must start early. You need to read religiously at least 2 hours on daily basis. Gather right materials from ICAN tutorial centres. Make sure you present yourself for lecture. It is very difficult to use an academic knowledge and idea to pass professional exams. There are some secret that you can never hear anywhere except from a right tutors centres. Do you know that it is possible to predict probable questions for ICAN exams? These are the secret that we lecturers have that students don't have. Also, there is one thing to know what to write, and there is another thing to be able to deliver it within 3 hours....

If you are in lagos ,you can reach me on 08079276907 or iso_bayor@yahoo.com
