 Chartered accountancy

ABOUT CA

Chartered accountancy has been one of the most popular and respectful career choices in India, conducted by the ICAI (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India). The profession involves management of finances for an entity.

Chartered accountants are those professionals who are qualified to take on specific activities within the spectrum of accountancy. This includes topics such as auditing financial statements, filing tax returns and financial advising. A Chartered Accountant is also qualified to offer advisory services to clients which include companies and individuals.

We train our students in such a way that they are not just qualified but also ready to face the challenges waiting ahead in their career. Merely passing the exams is not enough to qualify as a successful Chartered Accountant. It needs a great level of training and professional performance.
