To provide an organisation for ASEAN Accountants for the further advancement of the status of the profession in the region with the view to establishing an ASEAN philosophy on the accounting profession.
The Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) was incorporated in 1958 and is the only local body in Malaysia which conducts a professional accountancy examination recognised under the Accountants Act 1967.
MICPA’s objective is to advance the theory and practice of accountancy in all its aspects, recruit, educate and train a body of CPAs who are equipped with the technical knowledge and competencies needed to provide value add services of the highest quality. The CPA designation is widely recognised as a premier brand of professional business qualification.
MICPA continues to play a key role in the setting of accounting standards and technical advisory for the Malaysian regulatory bodies responsible for carving out the business and financial landscape of this nation. The Institute continues to play an instrumental role in the research and development of accounting and auditing standards in Malaysia. As a founding member of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), MICPA has also contributed significantly to sustaining the accounting profession globally.
In 2009, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between MICPA and the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (currently known as Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ)), sealing a new era of professional ties marking an important milestone for both bodies in their quest to work together to promote the interest of students, members and the accountancy profession.
The MoU provides for mutual advanced entry for candidates into both of the accountancy bodies’ professional examinations. Graduates of the MICPA CAANZ Programme will obtain 2 professional qualifications – CPA (Malaysia) and CA (ANZ).
MICPA is governed by a Council of 30 elected members and has more than 3,200 members and over 600 registered candidates.
