Thank you for your support!
It is with regret that we inform you that the ICBA will be discontinuing its services as a South African Recognised Professional Body as of 31 December 2021. This decision has been taken due to the economic climate, the impact of COVID-19 and various regulatory restrictions in South Africa.
We would like to confirm that the closure of the ICBA in no way impacts the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), who is an Independent Examinations Body with whom we have been closely associated. The ICB will continue as it has been for the past 90 years and will, we believe, go from strength to strength.
We strongly encourage you to join other Professional Bodies in the sector. We believe that your association with a Professional Body will allow you to create beneficial connections and ultimately further your career. In this regard, we recommend that you consider the following Professional Bodies:
- SAIBA (South African Institute of Business Accountants) – https://saiba.org.za/
- SAIT (South African Institute of Taxation) – https://www.thesait.org.za/
- IAAP (International Association of Accounting Professionals) – https://www.iaapuk.org
- IAB (International Association of Bookkeepers) – https://www.iab.org.uk/
The ICBA would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your unwavering support over the past couple of years and it has been our privilege to connect with many people, institutions, and professional bodies.
We wish you all the best in your career and look forward to seeing you at the planned webinars for the remainder of the year. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via email.
