Dear ACCA Members

ACCA Pakistan Members Network Panel in their last meeting held on 29 April 2016 discussed the ongoing MNP elections. The MNP suggested that in addition to personal voting and voting through postal mails, scanned ballot papers sent through email may also be considered valid. ACCA Pakistan has carefully evaluated the suggestion in view of the MNP constitution and security of the voting process and has decided to make a provision for accepting scanned ballots through email. However the following instructions need to be adhered to:

1.    The email must be sent at Pakistan@accaglobal.com

2.    The email subject should be “ACCA Pakistan MNP Election 2016-18”

3.    The original ballot paper (already emailed to members) should be scanned and must contain member’s original signatures and registration ID

4.    Emails must not be sent at any other address and nobody should be copied/ blind copied to ensure confidentiality

5.    Emails votes must reach us by 5.00pm on 12 May 2016, after which the voting process culminates

Please note that ACCA reserves the right to cancel any vote which is not sent to us as per the above procedure.

Historic & Groundbreaking ACCA – LTBA MOU – ACCA MNP Elections 2016-18


Below are the pictures from the historic MOU signing between Lahore Tax Bar Association & ACCA which opened up the doors of tax practice and possibilities along-with career development for ACCA fraternity, an area previously dominated by some other accountancy bodies. This then led to the initiative that culminated in the practising liscence being issued in Pakistan (again i was the pioneer ACCA liscence holder).

Mr. Chas Roy Chowdhury, the (Global) Head of Taxation ACCA was specially invited to Pakistan and was the keynote speaker. The highlight of the event was Chas Roy Chowdhury being awarded an unprecedented Honorary Membership of LTBA.

This was achieved in my capacity as the pioneer ACCA member and Chairman Liaison Committee, LTBA. It is about such groundbreaking initiatives, that I wish to build upon for the betterment and professional development of ACCA fraternity.

This can only be possible with your vote and kind support.

I pray are doing well
Dear Sir,
I am writing to express my gratitude. i am an ACCA affiliate and i have attended almost all sessions on sales tax. I think about writing every time but i didn’t. reasons 1- I m not a good writer, 2- having bad writing skills 3- poor English.
By conducting such sessions ACCA and You have bestowed great favor upon us.All what i can do for you in return is PRAY.

Sir i have been rejected so many times in many interviews and tests and i was completely hopeless. I was thinking about to quit and then i received an unexpected call. This wasn’t my best performance but i am selected only because of Pakistan tax knowledge. With out you it was impossible i believe. Thank you for absolutely every thing 🙂

I also want to request you to please add me in the list of fortunes so that I can get updates about tax. I am sharing my contact details. If ever i can serve you, it would be an honor.
Respect, Gratitude and Best Regards,
Ayesha Noreen

Dear Reader,


May this writeup find you in the best of spirits.

Professional Intro:

You may have already read my general professional introduction. If you haven’t please have a look at:


Major Endeavors/Achievements for ACCA Community:

This is however to briefly introduce some of the brilliant endeavors undertaken for the development of ACCA community and thereby the accountancy profession in Pakistan.

  • Conducted and proposed CPDs particularly focused on taxation and local corporate laws to equip the members, affiliates and students with necessary technical skills in this extremely important area. (View Details )
  • Conducted almost all the taxation CPDs and one-third of the total CPDs for ACCA fraternity.
  • They’ve been phenomenally successful within the ACCA community and well received by the members of other accountancy bodies too, which in itself speaks of the top quality of the offering. The attendees included the top officials of firms, MNCs, businesses and public sector organizations.
  • These trainings have led to a multitude of members getting equipped for and landing job opportunities. The member satisfaction in Pakistan has increased manifolds and the CPD program is taken as a benchmark by the global head office. (View Details)
  • Represented and expedited for ACCA members in Pakistan to formally join the Taxation sector by getting joint events organized between the largest tax bar in Asia, LTBA and ACCA as Chairman Liaison Committee of LTBA.
  • This resulted in increased footprint for ACCA and culminated in an MOU between both bodies signed by ACCA’s Head of Taxation (Global) giving a formal pathway to ACCA members towards the lucrative taxation practice. (View Details)
  • Prior to this achievment, on my return from UK, I became the first ever ACCA to be enrolled as a member of a tax bar in Pakistan. This broke the monopoly of certain accountancy bodies there, created a precedent and opened up doors for ACCA members to join tax bars in Pakistan.
  • Organized collaborations between ACCA and LCCI resulting in ACCA being duly recognized by and included in the committees of LCCI; hence cementing the footprints of ACCA & opening of job opportunities at leading businesses for ACCA members.
  • Represented and/or introduced ACCA at various forums including LCCI, LTBA, MPDD, UET, several think tanks – being on their boards, e.t.c.
  • Moreover, prepared ACCA’s taxation proposals for the joint initiative with LCCI. This was unprecedented as ACCA was the ONLY accountancy body to be involved in this endeavor.
  • Helped organize and represented ACCA at the largest joint pre-budget seminar graced by dignitaries from all major tax bars, chambers, accountancy bodies and even the FBR team. Chairman FBR, the Chief Guest, highly appreciated the ACCA presentation by myself. This led to further enhanced footprint and acceptability of ACCA in Pakistan.  (View Details)
  • Proposed the idea of and assisted in ACCA’s practising liscence program for Pakistan.
  • Became the first ever ACCA practising license holder in Pakistan as a test case to ensure a smooth journey for all ACCA members in Pakistan. (View Details)
  • Similarly, my firm (Millennium Law & Corporate Company) became the Pioneer ACCA practising firm in Pakistan to create a case study for all ACCA members as well as bolstering the ACCA acceptance & footprints amongst professional firms.   (View Details)
  • Mentored a significant number of members, affiliates and students with their professional and personal inquiries, thereby contributing my share in the development of the ACCA community. (View Details)
  • Initiated unprecedented forums for ACCA community to interact with each other and the ACCA officials with ease.
  • Delivered the first ever “Thinking Ahead with ACCA” (a Ted Talk inspired program) on CPEC for enhanced recognition of ACCA in professional circles and increasing awareness of current issues within ACCA community. This is expected to be released soon globally.
  • Chaired ACCA’s Taxation sub-committee and finalized the budget and taxation proposals in an unprecedented manner which will further enhance the recognition of ACCA’s technical prowess amongst the relevant circles.
  • Recognized as a top professional to represent ACCA in the Professional Expert Forum.

These are just a few of the major endeavors, most of which were achieved in a very short span of time without being a part of the MNP.

Recognition by ACCA:

It was followed by few months being an MNP member as ACCA Pakistan in recognition of the outstanding achievements for ACCA community, nominated me as a technocrat member of the MNP. This allowed to further improve the deliverance for the collective benefit of the ACCA community.


Therefore as an elected MNP member, I’ll be able to more effectively pursue a lot of positive projects planned for the future, achieving the highest standards of excellence for the benefits of the ACCA community, InshaAllah.

Hero of Islamic World Dr. A Q Khan’s Felicitation message for Millat Thinkers’ Forum

Below is the felicitation message sent by Honorable Dr. A.Q. Khan, Hero of the Islamic World & Father of Pakistan’s Atomic Program on the auspicious occasion of the inauguration of the first indigenous, independent and international standard think-tank of Pakistan and Millat-e-Islamiya,

“Millat Thinkers’ Forum”

                               18th July 2014

Mr. Omer Zaheer Meer,                                                                                                              


Millat Thinkers’ Forum.


My dear Meer Sb,    Assalamo Alaikum,

I would like to congratulate you wholeheartedly on the formal inauguration of the Millat Thinkers’ Forum. It was the need of the hour that a forum be established where top professionals, successful businessmen, entrepreneurs, scholars, academics, media personalities, parliamentarians, lawyers, social workers, etc. can have discussions and brainstorm on matters of national importance and inform the public and the rulers of possible recommended solutions.

Most Western countries have such Think Tanks, which play an important role in advising the government on important matters. I hope that the Millat Thinkers’ Forum will be able to play the same positive role in Pakistan.

With my best wishes for the success of your highly commendable and nationally important initiative, I congratulate you once again on this auspicious occasion.

With profound regards.


Yours sincerely,

Dr. A.Q. Khan

NI & Bar, HI
