Founded on 30th November 1904, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants – ACCA is a widely renowned global body for professional accountants. By increasing its influence in the accounting profession worldwide, ACCA is the world’s most forward-thinking professional accounting body. Currently, there are more than 233,000 fully qualified members and 536,000 future members who are pursuing ACCA. The ACCA Nepal office is located in Trade Tower, Thapathali which handles promotional activities and student affairs with the combined effort from the fellow ALPs in the country.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal (ICAN), on the other hand, is the regulator of the accounting profession in the context of Nepal. The autonomous body was established in 1997 and had started to offer chartered accountancy (CA) courses in Nepal since 1999 and conducted the first CA examination in 2000. 

‘COST’ for completing the course is the most conventional question amongst the students who have successfully completed or are appearing their grade XII exams (NEB, A-Levels & CBSC). In order to address these questions and to provide a reliable estimate of the cost, the following comparative chart has been constructed.
