ICAN Signs MOU with Foreign Professional Accountancy Organisations (PAOs)

To enhance mobility and expand opportunities for its members, while also aligning its standards with leading global PAOs, ICAN has entered into a mutual agreement with three internationally renowned Professional Accountancy Organisations. These organisations include the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ghana (ICAG). This collaboration aims to establish new pathways for ICAN members to obtain memberships in these organisations. Eligibility for admission into these PFOs memberships is contingent upon ICAN members meeting specific criteria outlined below.


The Pathways scheme is based on professional experience which does not require applicants to study and sit for an exam or complete a qualification, but rather reflect on professional experience which applicant has acquired in the last five years and which will be demonstrated in writing and their skills in different areas.

Applicants are to provide a letter of good standing from the professional body they belong to apply for pathways. This letter must be issued and dated within three months and must confirm all the following to be valid:

  • Applicant to have a good disciplinary record with no outstanding complaints.
  • Applicant must be fully compliant with the continuing professional development (CPD) requirements of her Institute (90 MCPE Credit hours for three years consecutively).

That this professional body knows of no ethical or other reason why applicant should not be admitted to ICAEW. Application to be supported by an eligible sponsor who will fill a form to be submitted along with other documents. The sponsor must meet same criteria as the applicant.

  • Has successfully completed the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) Professional Qualification
