CAPA members are grouped according to the following categories, reflecting the different types of accountancy-related organisations that operate either directly or indirectly within the region.
Accountancy organisations that are headquartered in the Asia and Pacific region (as defined by CAPA) and are:
- recognised by law and/or general consensus, including by peers, the public and other stakeholders, as being a national professional accountancy organisation in good standing in the jurisdiction;
- considered to be of high quality and good repute, meeting the quality criteria as established by the Board in CAPA’s internal policies.
Accountancy organisations that are headquartered in the Asia and Pacific region (as defined by CAPA) which have an interest in the accountancy profession. Such organisations demonstrate a commitment to, but do not meet all, the “Member” admission criteria.
Organisations that have a recognised interest in the accountancy profession in the Asia and Pacific region which are either:
- professional accountancy organisations (PAOs) headquartered outside the Asia and Pacific region (as defined by CAPA) and member bodies of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC); or
- international organisations that are not PAOs.
CAPA currently has a membership of 31 accountancy organisations in 23 jurisdictions. For more information about each of the categories or enquiry about membership of CAPA, please contact the CAPA Secretariat.
