    ACCA is good if you want to settle in UK

    CA is good if you want to settle in India.

  3. Dear @harshit
    In my opinion ACCA is better than CA
    although both are same with respect to-
    1.both follows IAS
    2.both follows IFRS issued by IASB.
    but ACCA is somewhat wider acceptance globally ie. Recognisation in more than 130 countries
    where as CA considered more 'Prestigious'
    Plus point of doing ACCA-
    1.Articleship can be done after completing course
    2.Stipend is much more than CA
    3.Heavy packages
    4.Placement in MNC's.
    Negative point-
    Expensive course as compare to CA.
    If u opt for ACCA after Completing CA then u can claim exemptions in many subjects.
    Good luck

    The Big 4's in India do hire ACCA's but the no. of jobs for CA's in India are certainly higher as in the ACCA Course you won't be taught Taxation in the Indian Context.

    Hi, I'm a class 12 student. I would like to work and settle in the US. What should I pursue? To what extent would CA be worth doing? Are there any better options after 12th apart from CA?

    Thanks,
    Jayesh

    @Jayesh Sachdev : Indian CA is valid in Dubai and other middle-east areas but not in US

    To practice as an accountant in US, you should have the CPA US Degree

    I see, thanks.
    How far is ACCA useful (US)?
    And what would be a better option, CA or ACCA, in countries like India & Australia in terms of pay packages, job opportunities and career growth?
