All chartered accountants have completed the accredited postgraduate CA Program which sets rigorous entry standards and involves a series of demanding assessments based on real-world scenarios.

They are required to complete three years of mentored experience during which they apply their knowledge and skills to solve real-life business problems and make decisions.


Mandatory ongoing professional development ensures that chartered accountants remain up-to-date on the latest industry knowledge and trends.

Chartered accountants are bound by an internationally recognised Code of Ethics backed by a rigorous disciplinary process. This ensures that they are held accountable to high professional and ethical standards of integrity, objectivity, professional competence and due care, confidentiality, and professional behaviour.

Every chartered accountant undergoes years of rigorous ongoing education and, at Chartfords Chartered Accountants, we add to this almost 30 years of experience spanning the spectrum of financial services from bookkeeping, payroll, tax and accounting to auditing, risk assessment, and commercial compliance.
