The ACCA DipIFR Qualification


The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants offers the first globally accredited IFRS
qualification – the Diploma in International Financial Reporting (DipIFR). The qualification is designed
for those already possessing extensive accounting knowledge and experience but who now urgently
require a certificated understanding of IFRS’s and their implementation.

The English language version of the qualification is awarded on the basis of one examination, held in
June and December each year and can be undertaken by self-study or through a course of tuition. For
more information on ACCA’s DipIFR qualification, go to www.accaglobal.com/IFRS .

ATC International is delighted to have been chosen by ACCA as the only global provider of approved
course material for the DipIFR. The material is available to individual students, to be used on a self-
study basis or on a DipIFR courses provided by consultants including ATC International.

Please note that for qualified accountants, the DipIFR is an excellent way in which to gain verifiable
CPD points from your professional body.

The ACCA Professional Qualification


The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is the largest internationally recognised
accountancy body with over 450,000 students and members worldwide.

To become a fully qualified member, you must pass a series of demanding professional examinations
– for which ATC International provides a highly successful consulting programme – and meet ACCA’s
practical training requirement. Its well worth the effort as the ACCA qualification has been chosen by
the United Nations as the one to which all other accounting qualifications will be compared to improve
the level of professional accounting recognition on a global basis.

ACCA’s examination scheme covers Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Financial


Management, Strategy and Business Techniques, Auditing and Taxation and Law. The papers are
based on International Accounting and Auditing Standards and, in some countries papers in national
taxation and law are also available. A Romanian Tax version of paper F6 is scheduled for introduction
in 2009.

ACCA’s examinations are held in every country in the world during June and December each year and
are set and marked to the same high standard regardless of their location. You can be sure of the
quality of this global qualification.

The ACCA Professional Examination Scheme Structure

ACCA introduced a new syllabus at the December 2007 examination session. The examination
scheme comprises two distinct and progressive levels consisting of 14 examinations in total. All
Fundamental Level papers, comprising Knowledge and Skills Modules, are compulsory (unless
exemptions have been granted for a paper).

The Professional Level includes both optional and compulsory core Papers.

Knowledge Module
F1 Accountant in Business
F2 Management Accounting
F3 Financial Accounting*

Skills Module
F4 Corporate and Business Law F7 Financial Reporting*
F5 Performance Management F8 Audit and Assurance*
F6 Taxation F9 Financial Management

Part 3 – Professional Level


Essentials Module: Options Module:

Any 2 from the following 4 subjects may be taken.

P1 Professional Accountant P4 Advanced Financial Management


P2 Corporate Reporting* P5 Advanced Performance Management
P3 Business Analysis P6 Advanced Taxation
P7Advanced Audit and Assurance*

* Based on International Accounting and Auditing Standards.

ACCA’s Main Examination Rules


1. All the examinations consist of written papers in English and are two and three hours long
2. A maximum of four papers may be taken at one examination session in June or December
3. The pass mark for each paper is 50%
4. Students have up to 10 years in which to complete the examination scheme

Taking the ACCA Examinations


To be eligible to take ACCA’s examinations and attend any ATC International seminars you must be
registered as a student with ACCA.

You can obtain an ACCA registration form from our Bucharest office where we are delighted to advise
and help you complete this process.

4
Computer-Based Examinations
In addition to the traditional, paper-based examinations, ACCA also offers all of its Knowledge Module
examinations on computer.

Although the exams are taken on computer, linked to ACCA's own testing system and question banks,
the exams are sat under strict exam conditions and are administered by organisations formally
approved by ACCA.

The most important advantage of ACCA's computer-based exams is that they can be offered at any
time and so allow students to complete the Knowledge Module at a time that may be more convenient
than ACCA's major exam sessions in June and December each year. Candidates may also resit each
paper as many times as they like. Please note that the CBEs are included in ACCA’s allowance of a
maximum of four exams to be taken at any one session.

ATC International is approved to run ACCA's computer-based exams in Bucharest and we are offering
this facility to corporate clients and individual students throughout 2008.

The computer-based examination fee in 2008 is Euro 70 per paper plus VAT. This does not include
the exam fee payable to ACCA.

Students who wish to take advantage of our computer-based examination facility can attend our open
ACCA courses in preparation. See more details in this brochure.

For more details on our computer-based examination facility, please contact:

Luana Costea at luana.costea@atc-global.com .

ATC International’s International Bookkeeping (IBK) Programme

Before students commence their studies for paper F3, if they have not been awarded exemption from
this paper by ACCA, we think it is advisable that they undertake the ATC International Bookkeeping
programme (IBK).

We feel this is a key part of preparation for paper F3, as it covers all the basic elements of Financial
Accounting, which are assumed knowledge on the ACCA training courses.

Taking the IBK programme is a good thing even for students who have previously completed
Accounting degree programmes at University as it bridges the gap between the academic study of the
subject and the more practical and more international content of the ACCA’s professional programme.

The IBK may also be studied independently to the ACCA qualification, as a stand-alone training
qualification for staff engaged in bookkeeping duties. You or your staff may simply need some basic
accounting knowledge, or you may not be sure that you want to take the full ACCA programme or are
worried that perhaps your English is not yet good enough.

As a classroom course, the IBK lasts for three days. However, we also provide the course on a DVD
that includes video presentations by one of our most experienced tutors and full study material with
questions and answers. The IBK DVD is designed to provide a full self-study option to individuals and
also corporate clients who can make it available to their staff either on disk or as downloaded content
on their company intranet system.

The price of the IBK DVD is Euro 120 with a discount structure available to corporate clients.

The ATC International ACCA Learning System
As leaders in ACCA training in Europe, the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan and Central Asia, we
have developed a successful, systematic and structured approach to preparation for the ACCA
examinations that we believe offers you the best chance of success.

In Bucharest we offer our Link Course structure with a two or three-day introductory course followed
by a period of focused self-study. Then we provide a further two-day Revision Course, including
intensive question practise to prepare you effectively for the professional test that is the ACCA
examinations.

As soon as you enrol with us, we will send you your study material, designed and written by our own
tutors for use in the classroom and for directed self-study. Before your classes start, you should have
been working through your Study System and Study Question Bank – to allow you to keep pace with
our tutors’ in the classroom.

Each course ends with a two-hour mock exam to ensure that you are fully prepared for the content
and style of the ACCA examinations.

PTC. An increasing number of members are enjoying the benefits of a wide range of facilities and
support services, delivered effectively and conveniently on the Internet.
