What you will learn

  • Be able to accept referrals from other non-specialist accountants and in this way diversify your client composition to include business clients and other accountants.
  • Be offered a specialist work at a higher fee than normal accounting work providing a much higher profit margin per hour of service delivered.
*CIBA provides guides that are available as part of your preparation. Any recommended textbooks and webinars are an additional cost for your own expense.

  • To establish standards on the BAP(SA)’s professional responsibilities when an engagement to perform agreed-upon procedures regarding on the application of a Business Visa in terms of sections 14(1)(a) and (2)(b) of the Immigration Regulations (as amended) under the Immigration Act, No. 13 of 2002, is undertaken, and on the form and content of the report that the BAP(SA) issues in connection with such an engagement.
  • To obtain the license you need to provide evidence of competence in the specialist area. This evidence is presented by passing an exam. The exam is set by an independent industry expert and accredited by CIBA.
