Anyone knows how to change accounts profession. I heard you have to acquire socpa membership first than you can change the profession. Can anyone guide me on this?

Hi Uman911,

What is your qualification?

Hi faiz50,

I have bachelor degree in accounting from oxford brookes university attested from saudi cultural and saudi embassy in uk. But now the procedure is totally different. I have also applied for the membership of SOCPA. I need the procedure to change the profession of accounting. Currently my profession is Labour.

Atlast my profession changed from salesman to Electrical engineer successfully.

Uman911 is this the Bsc Hons. degree in Applied Accounting if this is the case then how did you get it attested from Saudi Culture? and also when did you get it attested?

Faiz50 it was attested in 2015 from saudi cultural in uk but now they are not attesting distant learning degrees. Yes it is same Bsc hon in applied accounting. When you changed your profession in accounting just update me the procedure.
