As the regulator and developer of the accountancy profession, MIA priorities member development to strengthen regulation and enforcement. Informed members are more likely to comply with the regulations governing the accountancy profession, which in turn supports good governance.
In Malaysia, only members of MIA are permitted to practise as accountants. MIA accords the Chartered Accountant Malaysia or C.A.(M) designation to a professional in accountancy, business and finance with a recognised accountancy qualification and relevant working experience.
Accountancy is a versatile profession and accountants are integral to business and economic growth. More than 37,500 members work in diverse roles in the four main sectors of Commerce & Industry, Public Practice, Public Sector and Academia. To ensure the continuing relevance and value of members in the changing landscape, MIA priorities member development and upskilling through the provision of key services to members, embedded with the profession’s core values of accountability, integrity and trust.
To ensure that members are in compliance with the latest standards, professional practices and regulations, MIA continuously updates members on the latest laws, policies and guidelines and technical information affecting the profession. At the same time, MIA provides comprehensive guidance on technical enquiries on practice issues, interpretation of by-laws and guidelines, guidance to members to set up their own practices and other concerns affecting members. Members are also unceasingly reminded to behave ethically and professionally in providing assurance to stakeholders, in order to uphold the public interest.
