Welcome to the ICBA

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and Accountants (ICBA) is a professional body for qualified finance professionals and business practitioners in Southern Africa, which includes bookkeepers, accountants, office administrators and financial managers.

As a professional body, the ICBA awards designations for people who hold recognised, registered qualifications and relevant work experience. Our qualified members can put letters after their names that are recognised worldwide.

Show you mean business by joining us.

We welcome members who have ICB qualifications, as well as NQF-registered qualifications from other professional bodies and accredited tuition providers.

Learners who are studying towards one of these qualifications are also welcome to join the ICBA as student members.

As an ICBA member, you can apply to upgrade your designation as you achieve new qualifications together with relevant work experience. The ICBA recognises NQF-registered qualifications in bookkeeping, accounting, office and financial management.

Should you wish to upgrade your membership level based on qualifications and/or work experience, please apply in writing and submit the qualification and work experience together with the membership upgrade fee.
