Role of ACCA & LIA
ACCA is the Examining body for the CAT and Professional scheme exams. LIA is the local regulator of professional accountants in Lesotho and a Joint Exam Scheme partner with ACCA.
You must apply directly with LIA to be able to sit the examinations of LIA/ACCA. Forms should be collected at LIA and submitted to LIA with the ACCA and LIA registration fees.
Please note that, even if you will seek NMDS sponsorship, you may still need to pay these fees before the sponsorship is approved and claim a refund later from LIA when NMDS pays your fees.
CAS is a tuition provider and is not responsible for examination or registration to write examinations. All queries related to examinations should be referred to LIA.
