COLOMBIAN IFRS BUSINESS BECOMES FIRST LATIN AMERICAN ACCA REGISTERED LEARNING PARTNER

  • Colombia leads the way in having the first IFRS training business accredited by ACCA
  • ACCA’s crucial involvement in the implementation of international standards in Colombia has led to the Certificate in IFRS being offered in Spanish

Colombia’s Business & Legal Advisories Ltda. (BLA Ltda) signed a historic Memorandum of Understanding which has enabled the company to become Latin America’s first registered learning partner with ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), the global body for professional accountants.

The Registered Learning Partner accreditation process requires tuition providers to meet a range of challenging performance targets, covering the institution’s overall management, and more specifically its course management and delivery.

The Registered Learning Partner accreditation recognises that BLA Ltda.’s training business meets global best practice benchmarks for tuition and support of the ACCA specialised certificates in International Financial Reporting Standards; International Financial Reporting Standards for SMEs; and International Audit in Spanish.

Fifty distinguished guests, who included business and industry leaders, representatives from the national government, educational institutions, plus professional accountants and university lecturers, were at the reception in the Radisson Hotel in Cali, where the accreditation was presented.
