I probably should have added that, firstly, I am a first year accountant trainee (articles clerk )in Cape Town, and, secondly, I know many others at audit firms in their first, second and final years who started on those salaries...8-10k?? What are you smoking? R5k to R6k in Cape Town for first year articles.
Where are these salaries being paid? I have yet to meet anyone with a bcom and honours who is being paid R5-R6k for articles. As IceDreama says, even those without honours, ie just a bcom, earn more than that.For a first year articles clerk in Cape Town with no work experience the average is R5k to R6k. R10k is unheard of. Cape Town salaries are lower than Joburg/Pretoria.
And so will I as a second year student.Busy with my 3rd year of accounting so going to follow this thread!
Definitely not. The 10k is gross i.e. before all the deductions. Sucks compared to say engineers starting salary...but improves rapidly.first paycheck will be +-R9000 to R10000. Thats after tax and their other deductions (medical aid contributions etc)
How does that work? Honours is required for CTA/articles/PPE/QE.Currently in my fourth and final year of articles (without honours urgh) and only got a decent salary jump to 8200 gross this year. Should mention though that I'm at a small firm where the salaries are usually bit less.
As far as I know, Saica rules are that you can do your articles while doing your honours part time, on condition that you do 5 years of articles (as opposed to 3) and that you complete your honours within that time. But now I'm actually wondering where in that process you would write your board exams...How does that work? Honours is required for CTA/articles/PPE/QE.
Unless you're talking about a law firm?
Still doesn't jive with what was said above.As far as I know, Saica rules are that you can do your articles while doing your honours part time, on condition that you do 5 years of articles (as opposed to 3) and that you complete your honours within that time. But now I'm actually wondering where in that process you would write your board exams...
Still not sure how exactly the guy's scenario fits into this.To pursue a career as a Chartered Accountant on a part time basis you will be able to immediately enter into a five-year training contract with a Registered Training Office (RTO) upon which you must complete a B Com Accounting degree or equivalent CA (SA) undergraduate qualification as then complete the CTA or equivalent.
The same pre-requisites apply for as for entering into full-time study.
Another option is to complete your undergraduate qualification full time and then enter into a 4-year learnership at an RTO or ATO and complete your CTA or equivalent part-time.
Not exactly no it isn't.Honours is required for CTA/articles/PPE/QE.
