Specialist qualifications

Coronavirus Update - 13 March 2020

Chartered Accountants Ireland is closely monitoring official advice in relation to Covid-19, and is in regular contact with members and partners to review activities on a case by case basis.  The most up-to-date information on the virus can be found at:

This is an evolving situation, and we have now taken the decision to postpone all our member and student events up to 29 March and we are revising activities after that on a case by case basis. We will contact all attendees directly in relation to this. We will also be writing directly to all students and firms relating to study and exams. In all cases, we direct staff, members and students to the public health advice for their area, and encourage them to follow any additional advice provided to them by their firm or employer.

We will also be contacting students and firms relating to study and exams today, and issuing further guidance next week.

While many Institute staff are now working from home, the Institute is still open for business and we are committed to supporting students and members at this time.
