Hi,

Can anyone give me some advice regarding ACCA & CIMA please.
Im not 100% sure what the differences are between them, and how many papers there are. Fingers crossed once i sit the PEV exam in Dec i will have finished AAT so i`m looking at my options now but not sure where to look.

Any help would be great.
Thank you

    I would look at the syllabi of both and see which one takes your fancy.

    CIMA doesn't deal with much tax and little audit but more management type stuff in higher detail than ACCA.

    ACCA obviously deals with tax and audit in more detail.

    That's a really superficial description so look at the respective websites and see which one takes your fancy.

    Thank you Bluewednesday,
    I had a little look on the websites but got a little confused (normal for me)
    I will have another look.

    What do you do at the moment and what work do you want to do in the future?
