About us

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and Accountants (ICBA) is a professional body for qualified finance professionals and office administrators in  southern Africa.
We award designations for people who hold recognised, registered qualifications and relevant work experience – while working to improve the perception and professionalism of our field.

The ICBA welcomes 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 update the letters after your name based on new qualifications and/or work experience.
