    If you have completed your bachelors then we would recommend CFA instead of CA. As I have qualified both, I can assure the value CFA will bring to you at this age will be much higher than CA or MBA.

    Age is only a number if ones effort, dedication, honesty and sincerity to accomplish something is driven by 100% devotion. Having said that pursuing CA in your late 30’s is a difficult task particularly if you are a married woman with children. Let me tell you what it takes to become CA: almost something that a professional football player does to maintain his physical fitness and mental positive attribute. Having said all this is never impossible to acheieve something in lie at any age. But, be prepared to devote at least 12 hours of your daily available hours for 3 to 5 years. The dividend you get after passing CA is something you cant expect.

    What is the scope of CA in Nepal? What is the average yearly income of CAs in Nepal?
    As of now, Nepal has poor compliance to taxation and other business regulation laws. Low corporate governance, loopholes in taxation system and many people are not within tax brackets.

    But will it remain the same ? No, it won’t. It has to change to support the federalism and this will increase the scope of CAs in Nepal.

    States will have to find ways to collect taxes to fund themselves. And for those they will need CAs for various audit and compliance works.

    So hope first query is answered. Now lets come to second one. How much CAs are earning.

    In corporate world a CA fresher are making around 3.60 Lakhs to 4.80 Lakhs.

    However the experienced are making 12 lakhs and above.

    CA in practice can make more money if they have effective network. But it needs a good time to make it. You have to grow your knowledge and network for it.

    So lets conclude: CAs in Nepal can maintain decent lifestyle.
