Incentive Scheme

When it comes to attracting and retaining top talent, Chartered Accountants Ireland has practical supports for training organisations.


We are offering Registered Training Organisations a financial incentive for taking on additional trainee(s) in 2020/21. A credit of €1,000/£900 is available against the education fees of each additional student recruited.  

For example, a firm who took on one student in 2019, and in 2020 decides to take on two students, will secure a credit to their account of €1,000/£900. 

The credit applies to the first year education fees only, and up to a maximum of 4 students, meaning you can save up to €4,000/£3,600.

We have a limited number of incentives available. To avail of the incentive, please register your interest with us by emailing
