    First step is you need to get your qualifications assessed by CA ANZ. Punta ka lang sa site nila and all the requirements are there.

    You might need to take some bridging subjects (CA Foundation course) esp Tax and Commercial Law.

    After that you need to pass 5 CA program subjects.

    Apart from the above academic requirements, you also need to meet their practical requirement to qualify for full CA membership. Sa pagkakaalam ko 3 years of full time or part time worked in an approved or recognized employer which is normally auditing firms.

    Goodluck, medyo madugo yung process pero worth it in the end.

    Wala sigurong definite answer which one is ok, really depend on one's circumstances.

    When it comes to applying for a job, madalas naman hinahanap either CA or CPA. All things being equal, if the hiring manager is a CPA baka paboran nya yung CPA, similar if the hiring manager is a CA.

    The only advantage nung CA is that is the preferred qualification if you work in an auditing firm. Sagot nila yung CA related expenses mo.

    That being said, a lot of my clients in Finance Department have a CPA qualification.

    When it comes to studies, mas matagal bubunuin mo sa CA compared to CPA. That is why CPA is the more logical path to take if you have a family.
