Chartered Accountancy (CA) is a Professional course in Accountancy. Although the title “Accountancy” is used, the course of CA is broader in that apart from Financial Accounting, it has core subjects of study as Auditing, Business Law, Corporate Law, Financial Management, Information Technology, Cost and Management Accountancy and Taxation. The course is designed in such a way that the Chartered Accountants are recognized as complete business solution providers immediately upon passing the course.

For Students from Nepal, the Chartered Accountancy can be done either from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal (ICAN) or from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). CA from both the Institutes (ICAN and ICAI) has 3 levels with a total duration of 4.5 years with a compulsory practical training of 3 years while doing the final level which is called artilceship training. In case the Course is opted from the ICAI, the students complete the first 2 levels of course from Nepal itself and need to go to India for the 3 years of Articleship at the final level. In case of ICAN, the Articleship and whole course will be completed from Nepal itself.
