SAIBA licenses are issued by a professional body that is a recognised controlling body for accounting officers, independent reviewers, business accountants performing assurance and non-assurance engagements.
Earning a license distinguishes you from general accountants and allows clients to value your specialisation. Some of our licenses are required in terms of statutory regulations.
A SAIBA license is suitable for experienced practitioners that have gained at least 3 years' experience running their own firm and now have an opportunity to provide enhanced services to clients.
The Official SAIBA CPD Platform
SAIBA only recognises CPD obtained from our official SAIBA CPD platform - www.saiba.academy. If you don't do your CPD with us and log your CPD hours within your membership profile your hours may not be recognised. Make sure you only do CPD at www.saiba.academy or phone SAIBA to confirm if your CPD provider is accredited by SAIBA.
The SAIBA Academy helps you:
We develop licenses in various areas of specialisation, for example:
Licenced to specialise.
The license programme was developed by industry experts to test your competence in a particular specialist area. The underlying exam is written online and candidates can write at any time. Preparation is through self-study and experience. The exam consists of multiple choice questions aligned to a detailed curriculum.
The entry requirements for the license is a BAP(SA), CBA(SA) or an equivalent designation at NQF level 7, together with a minimum of 3 years of post-designation relevant experience.
Branded, secure, and verifiable digital certificates
A few good reasons why you need to specialise
As a specialist in the subject area
Specialist work generally can be offered at a higher fee than normal accounting work providing a much higher profit margin per hour of service delivered.
You will 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.
Some of the licences that SAIBA issue are prerequisite for obtaining statutory recognition such as for Independent Review and Business Rescue.
SAIBA continuously engage with legislators and administrators to ensure that SAIBA licenses become the minimum standard of competence prescribed by legislation.
Obtaining a license will position you ahead of the curve. Recent scandals in the profession have placed renewed emphasis on quality control and ethical conduct.
Regulators including the National Treasury, Department of Trade and Industry, SAQA, IRBA, and SARS have been requested by Parliament to implement new regulations to clamp down on unprofessional conduct by accountants and auditors.
