If you already have certain qualifications you may not have to take all of the examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (CA Sri Lanka). These are exemptions which mean you will start your studies at the right level of your knowledge and skills.

There are several paths to CA Sri Lanka membership and many students undertake prior learning which is equivalent to some CA Sri Lanka examinations. Where appropriate CA Sri Lanka ensures that students' entry points match the knowledge and skills they have acquired through their previous qualifications. In doing so CA Sri Lanka aims to provide students with the quickest possible route to membership.

All exemptions are available on the basis of qualifications held by students. CA Sri Lanka has prepared a user guide to the exemptions enquiry database, which offers a short step - by - step guide to checking what exemptions you may be eligible to claim. If you require any further assistance in regard to your exemptions, please contact CA Sri Lanka Registration Division.

When you first register as a student with CA Sri Lanka you should apply for exemptions. If you have gained additional qualifications since you first registered as a CA Sri Lanka student and believe you may be eligible for further exemptions, you can apply for these at any time later.

You must present official proof of qualifications related documents and also the certified copies of professional / academic transcripts or certificates awarded to you with an exemption request letter to the CA Sri Lanka Registration Division.
