You may be surprised to learn that in New Zealand, you do not require any qualification or training to work as an accountant. In contrast, a Chartered Accountant has undertaken years of study and adheres to strict ethical and technical standards. Choosing a Chartered Accountant gives you the security of knowing you work will meet or exceed these recognised technical and ethics benchmarks.
Whitelaw Weber is proud to be a member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ).
All CAANZ members must earn one of three designations (Chartered Accountant, Associate Chartered Accountant, Accounting Technician), which means they have already completed a significant amount of study and practical work experience by the time they are qualified.
Members are required to keep up to date with changes affecting the business and finance industry through ongoing professional development.
They’re also required to maintain high ethical and professional standards whether they work in business or practice.
