pipfa is an abbreviation for Pakistan institute of public finance accountants. It is an accounting diploma. after doing the pipfa the first two modules of ca are exempted. you may take admission in pipfa after doing intermediate or bachelor’s degree. the head office of pipfa is situated in Karachi.
Pipfa consists of 11 papers if you start it after you do it after intermediate , and it consists of 6 papers if you start it after graduation. the subjects or courses fulfill the requirements of the international accounting standars. some of the courses offered by the pipfa are financial accounting, auditing, cost accounting, company law, computer science and other topics related to the accountancy field.
very few people in Pakistan are aware of the pipfa qualification because it has been launched lately. there are a huge number of Pakistanis who are doing the ACCA qualification, but there are very few people who even know that pipfa qualification exists.
I would recommened by fellow Pakistanis to do this pipfa qualification because it is recognized all over Pakistan and there is demand for pipfa qualified professionals because very few people complete it successfully every year. second reason I would recommend Pakistanis to do the pipfa qualification is that jobs are readily available for the pipfa qualified students.
