Mazars LLP is pleased to announce that we have been appointed as an Accredited Training Organisation (ATO) by the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC) in the Singapore Qualification Programme (Singapore QP).
Being an ATO signifies that we have been recognised by the SAC as having an appropriate working environment and mentoring support for staff who wish to undertake the Singapore QP.
Mazars fully supports the Singapore QP which provides a pathway for qualification and recognition for individuals from all disciplines who aspire to be Chartered Accountants of Singapore. We believe that it will raise the professional standards of our staff. In line with the CDAS Final Report, we also believe that the Singapore QP will attract talent from all disciplines to join Mazars and aspire to be Chartered Accountants of Singapore.
Rick Chan will be our Training Principal for purposes of the Singapore QP. He will have overall responsibility for supervising the training of Singapore QP candidates in Mazars LLP. We have also identified dedicated and qualified mentors within the firm who will be responsible for monitoring the development of those staff who have enrolled themselves in the Singapore QP.
The first batch of Singapore QP candidates will be acknowledged in June 2013.
