HKICPA builds a future-ready profession and a sustainable talent pool with the new Qualification Programme

18 December 2019

(HONG KONG, 18 December 2019) The Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“HKICPA”) has scheduled to launch the new Qualification Programme (“QP”) stage-by-stage, offering flexible pathways and relevant trainings to students with different educational backgrounds to become CPAs. 

Building on the solid foundation of the current qualification framework, the new QP is designed to meet the market needs, in turn align with the concept of "Accounting Plus" to attract more young talents into the accountancy profession by equipping them with analytical minds and problem-solving skills in the fast changing world.

 “In the increasingly complex, connected and cooperative world of Accounting Plus, accountants must perform even more versatile roles to help their employers and clients respond to challenges and to grow. The new QP aims at building a future-ready profession, equipping accountants with both the solid accounting knowledge and skills, and ethical values necessary for a successful career – in practice or in business,” said Margaret Chan, Chief Executive and Registrar. 

Comprising three progressive levels with 14 modules and a Capstone workshop, new QP provides greater flexibility for students with different educational backgrounds, including sub-degree holders and non-accounting majors, to become CPAs. The newly introduced Associate level builds a solid foundation of technical accounting knowledge.

The Professional and the Capstone levels aim to further deepen the technical knowledge and integrate students’ knowledge, skills, and experiences gained from the previous levels to solve complex business problems that the professional accountants typically encounter.

Application for the new QP (Associate Level) examination in June 2020 will be closed on 11 January 2020. For details, please click here for an introductory video or visit
