Accounting In the UK or Australia


G

Geoffrey

If I was to obtain my CPA here in America, and work for a little while
then move to either the UK or Australia would being a CPA carry any
weight over there? Would it be laterally transferrable, or would it
just be recognition (if that)? Is there a test similar in the UK or
Australia to the CPA in America?


Thank you,
Geoffrey

I guess it depends what work you do. Clearly, the tax & corporate laws
are different. Also, the accounting standards are different (Australia
is moving to European standards on 1 Jan 2005). But then, I see the
occasional advert for accountants who know a bit about American
standards. You're lucky that so many multinationals are domiciled in
the US!

Here are three good job search engines from Australia

Recently met a CPA working for PwC. Shortage of accountants down
under...maybe it's worth considering joining one of the big firms,
get your CPA and ask for a secondment.
