Overseas members

The Institute supports members both at home and abroad. This page highlights the more commonly sought after service by our members overseas.

Working abroad

Chartered Accountants Ireland has reciprocity agreements with a number of other Institutes that allow Chartered Accountants Ireland members apply for dual membership of those bodies and allows their members apply to Chartered Accountants Ireland for dual membership.

Chartered Accountants Ireland is a member of the Global Accounting Alliance (GAA). One of the key objectives of the GAA is to provide local support to members wherever they are in the world. In order to achieve this, GAA Institutes have agreed to provide specific local support and services to all members of GAA Institutes who are living and working in their territory.

What leaders say is important

May 05, 2017
What leaders say is important – this was the key message from Institute president Liam Lynch when he addressed meetings of members in New York and Boston last week.

Mr Lynch emphasised the need for trust in all aspects of society, but particularly business life, and the role Chartered Accountants can play in developing that trust. Brexit, the Trump tax proposals and regulatory reform were also discussed at both events in the US, which underline the global nature and reach of the Chartered Accountants qualification.
