    Hello, I am planning to get assessed by CPAA and most likely I would be in Pathway 2. I just like to ask, do I need to be in Australia to take the exam papers? How much does an exam cost? In your rough estimate, gaano po katagal tapusin yung 4 subjects and 2 electives? Lastly, yung experience requirement po ba must be within AU boundaries?

    Thank you so much! Looking forward for your reply.
  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,439Member, Moderator
    @Luis Cuntapay
    u can take exams outside AU.
    around 1200 AUD per paper
    exams offered twice a year.
    experience need not to be within AU.

    all info are in CPAA website.

    @batman Any feedback regarding the exam po? Are they too difficult? ☺
    So like I can finish the exam papers in just a year for instance, I take the first 3 on the 1st offering then I take the remaining 3 on the 2nd offering?

    Thank you!

  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,439Member, Moderator
    @Luis Cuntapay doable, because our Phil CPA papers are more challenging, around 7-8 subjects and need to take in one sitting while CPA Au almost the same topics and you can take it one at a time tapos open notes pa. :)

    @batman nag-apply na din ako ng membership last week. I think there is benefit sa future applications natin yung title na Associate CPA. Gaano po ba katagal ang processing nun?

    Kelan ka enroll ng subject?
    Thanks :)

    pag nakakuha na siguro ako ng visa yun na ang next project ko. sorry sa very late reply.

  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,439Member, Moderator
    @Luis Cuntapay I'm still applying for AU visa. did a research, they said external audit field in AU is not that toxic compared sa pinas. though wala akong audit back ground sa pinas so I don't have first hand idea.

    Maganda din ang naidudulot ng CPAA membership kahit assoc pa lang. I was talking to finance director in one multinational company, he asked if i have other professional body affiliation other than CPA Philippines. So I mentioned about my being associate member of CPA Australia. He was impressed. Though i clearly pointed out that it was through mutual recognition, still it has given like an edge to those who dont have ASA. just sharing the benefits other than the monthly newsletter( i seldom open) hehe!

  • Ajit22Ajit22 PhilippinesPosts: 23Member
    @batman Business administration po yung undergrad ko pero gusto ko po maging accountant by taking a masters degree in Australia. Sa Pinas kasi walang ganun, kailangan bachelors degree yung kunin. Ask ko lang po, if ever bumalik ako ng Pinas right after matapos yung course sa Australia, pwede po ba kong mag apply for membership sa PICPA, given na meron na tayong MPA with CPA Australia? Base sa alam ko, you will be an associate member agad ng CPA Australia once you finish masters degree course in accounting sa Australia. I'm not sure lang if pwede ka rin magpaqualify even as associate member pagdating sa PICPA.
  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,439Member, Moderator
    @Ajit22 bakit need mo pa ng PICPA kong CPAA member ka na. yun na lng pursue mo. mas mabigat na qualification yun.

    @batman Ganun po ba? Actually po kailangan ko kasi majustify na babalik ako sa Pinas after graduation from Australia para ma satisfy yung GTE requirement ng embassy sa student visa. So iniisip ko po kung possible mag work sa mga accounting firms dito kahit hindi ka member ng PICPA pero associate member ka ng CPA Australia kasi yun po yung gagamitin kong reason.
  • katiebkatieb Quezon CityPosts: 3Member

    Hi @batman ... For Pathway 2 requirement na "hold a university degree recognised by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training as being at least equivalent to Australian bachelor degree level" , met na ba yun kapag nakalagay sa CPAA Migration assessment na Assessment Outcome -
    Your Bachelor of Science in Accountancy is assessed as comparable to an Australian
    Bachelor degree.?

    If met na yun and PH CPA ka, need pa ba maging active member ng PICPA?

    Hi @batman ... Just a random question here - Once you become an Associate member of CPA Australia via the MPA and di ka agad nakapag-enrol into the CPA Program or complete the required exams, are you required to pay the membership renewal fee for Associates after every year na mag-lapse? Also, any idea what's the difference between the membership renewal fees for Associate and Associate (on full rate)?

  • batmanbatman Darwin AustraliaPosts: 3,439Member, Moderator

    Not required to pay. Pero di k maka enroll if d k pay ng fee. Associate pede kc half or full pay mo in a Yr

    Oooh. Noted on this one. So better pala to enroll into the program and complete the exams as early as possible if kakayanin once we got approval to be an Associate member of CPAA. Ang mahal nga lang ng fees per subject.
