TOEFL Certificate Recommended for Accounting Professionals

Posted: Dec 8, 2014

The Institute of Chartered Accountants, the Institute of Public Accountants and CPA Australia have officially endorsed the TOEFL certificate as the required proof of English language proficiency, putting the accounting profession in line with the forthcoming skilled migration regulations changes.

Helen Cook, ETS Australasia Associate Director, announced this decision and confirmed the change will be valid for international graduates and skilled migrants applying not only for student and skilled visas, but also for professional accreditation.

The TOEFL test is administered in 180 countries, so accounting employers can access a new and diverse pool of capable employees who must demonstrate exactly how well they can function in English.

Current and future professionals seeking accounting accreditation in Australia will take a key step in order to gain access to their future potential by focusing on adding a current TOEFL certificate to their résumés.
