READMISSION

Previous members can apply for readmission. To do so, you will need to complete an online application. Please note, we cannot guarantee your readmission until we have assessed your application. You can apply to re-join membership with CPA Australia at any time*.

*If a readmission application is received between 1 October 2017 and 31 December 2017, payment for the next year’s membership is also made in advance.
All fees are applicable at the time of application.

A CPA OR FCPA

You will need to pay the following fees:

• Application fee
• Membership fee
• Up to two previous years’ membership fees (subject to when membership ceased)

Please note, if there are other fees or charges outstanding, you will be advised as part of the readmission process.

You will need to provide evidence of 20 hours of continuing professional development (CPD), undertaken within the last 12 months. For more information visit continuing professional development.

If your original admission was based on a mutual recognition agreement (MRA) with another professional body, you will also need to include a current letter of good standing from this body.

Your outcome

Verifying your application outcome take 10 to 15 business days. If your membership ceased over five years ago or if you do not immediately satisfy the criteria for readmission, this will take longer as it is considered on its merits by our Admissions Committee. If your documentation is incomplete or we need additional documentation this could delay your verification time.

FEES

Application fees apply to all membership applicants. Membership fees are annual fees that apply to those who may be eligible to become an Associate member or CPA. You cannot complete your application unless these fees are paid and your supporting documents have been provided.

Our website contains our current fees. Application and membership fees are not refundable so please take care when you complete your application and check the accuracy of the information that you have provided.
