The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) recently awarded Baker Tilly with the ACCA Approved Employer Professional Development Status.

The Approved Employer professional status is awarded by ACCA to employers who demonstrate commitment in providing quality learning opportunities for employees and support their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). As such, Baker Tilly was assessed against a number of best practice learning and development requirements and met the specific criteria set by ACCA. 

Baker Tilly Senior Partner Priyan Edirisinghe said he was pleased with the endorsement which carries with it “recognition and prestige”. “Our approach to professional development aims to ensure that learning and development opportunities are relevant to our employees at all phases of their career. Achieving the Approved Employer status assures our employees that Baker Tilly is meeting a global standard of development. It will be a great honour and responsibility to continuously maintain the highest quality of training and development of our staff.” ACCA Sri Lanka Head Nilusha Ranasinghe commented: “This status means that Baker Tilly meets ACCA’s demanding criteria for professional development, including having the right policies and processes in place. This will also significantly enhance the mutually beneficial cooperation between our organisations in the sphere of increasing financial experts’ training and qualification standards.”

Baker Tilly International is the world’s ninth largest network of independent accounting and business advisory firms, consisting of offices in more than 145 territories, with 745 offices and over 34,000 employees worldwide and are independently owned and managed accountancy and business consulting firms globally. 

Amongst them is Baker Tilly Sri Lanka, founded in 1985 by Founder Partner A.T.P. Edirisinghe which has enjoyed a continued growth in the local market. Today, the firm has five partners and over 100 staff operating out of its office based in Colombo.
