Introduction Welcome to my website on Accountancy. I am currently working as an assistant accountant in London, UK.
Accountancy is the profession dedicated to dealing with accounts of economic bodies
There are 275000 professional accountants in the UK. Adding the number accounts assistants inflates this figure.
CIMA CIMA is an acronym for 'Chartered Institute of Management Accountants'
I am a CIMA finalist. I have passed all 16 CIMA exams. I must have 3 years of certified practical experience as an accountant before I become a full member of CIMA.
CFA stands for 'Chartered Financial Analyst'. CFa institute is a US based institute with members all over the world. There are 3 levels of exams in the road to CFA membership. I am currently preparing for CFA level 1 exam, which I will sit February 2024
