Passport for members

GAA Passport for Member Services

The Hong Kong Institute of CPAs is a founding member of the Global Accounting Alliance, an international accounting coalition of the world's premier accounting bodies. The alliance was formed in November 2005 to collectively represent the views and interests of members with national regulators, governments and other stakeholders. By working more closely with our colleagues in the other capital markets around the globe, we will be able to provide leadership to the profession, working as one on key issues and initiatives that are important to members.

The 10 alliance bodies institutes:

  • American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
  • Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand
  • Chartered Accountants Ireland
  • Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada
  • Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants
  • Institut der Wirtschaftsprufer in Deutschland e.V.
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland
  • Japanese Institute of Certified Public Accountants
  • South African Institute of Chartered Accountants


    Member support

    The 10 member institutes of the Global Accounting Alliance are pleased to announce that in future members of any one institute will be able to receive professional support when working in another country covered by the GAA. The 10 institutes have each agreed to host visitors from other GAA institutes when domiciled in their jurisdiction.
    This significant development will mean that in a world where professional accountants regularly move around the world their membership of their home Institute will not only entitle them to support at home, but in addition if they are working in a country covered by a GAA institute they will receive much of the support that the institute provides to its own members for no extra fee.
    All members of GAA institutes will be able to avail themselves of this additional service. This service reflects the global significance of the 800,000 professional accountants covered by the Global Accounting Alliance and will help in ensuring their ongoing high standards of professional service.
    "No matter which of the GAA institutes is your home, you will be welcomed by any or all of the other GAA institutes wherever your work takes you," said Garry Muriwai, founding chairman of the Global Accounting Alliance.
