Vistra Singapore Awarded the Gold ACCA Approved Employer Status

Vistra Corporate Services (SEA) Pte Ltd (“Vistra Singapore”) has now been awarded a Gold ACCA Approved Employer – trainee development accreditation by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (“ACCA”).

This prestigious accreditation means that ACCA recognises the learning opportunities Vistra Singapore provides for its employees working towards the ACCA Qualification.  We were assessed against a number of best practice and development standards.

The advantage of becoming an 'ACCA approved employer – trainee development' is that Vistra Singapore can now decide whether or not our trainees can take advantage of the Performance Objective exemption available to students when working for an Approved Employer. This exemption means that ACCA has confidence in our systems and processes.

Trainees studying towards the ACCA qualification can claim exemption from the performance objective component of their practical experience requirements. They will only be required to provide details of their employment with Vistra Singapore to claim the performance objective exemption. Trainees studying towards the Certified Accounting Technician qualification can also claim some exemptions in the components of their foundations in practical experience requirements.

This accreditation not only benefits the employees on the training programme but also Vistra Singapore and its clients. As most trainees will be working in our Client Accounting team, we will be able to provide more comprehensive accounting knowledge to our clients.
