“There’s a big difference between an accountant and a Chartered Accountant. I’m not gonna go through four years of school, two board exams, and three years of training for you to call me an Accountant. It’s “Chartered” ma’am….thank you,” Nokuphila wrote in the tweet.

According to Unbiased, a chartered accountant can offer specialist accountancy services and business advice in a range of important areas. The key difference between an accountant and a chartered accountant is that the latter is typically more highly qualified and experienced, and will be a member of a professional body.

@msshantal_ reacted:

“She right though. .”

@AsiefD responded:

“Explain to me how you’re actually embodying the values of a CA in terms of the competency framework. No organisation would want someone like you leading them if all you’re good for is your knowledge of debits and credits? People are angry at you, but I just feel sorry for you. Also, you’re in violation of @saica_ca_sa regulations by calling yourself a “CA(SA) trainee” in your bio. There’s no such thing and it’s fraudulent to mislead people in this manner. You should know this if you’re so proud of the CA(SA) brand mos.”

@ss_life24 commented:

“Eish, this tweet reminds me of one CA at Sasol who couldn't reconcile a bank account . Tjo and she refused to be taught by an 'Accountant'. Akunzima .”

“You sound like you are unsure of your title y do u need validation from pips. Did you study for your own benefit or for the streets? Don’t be like those DR who want to be addressed by DR outside of the profession. As long as pips are respectful toward you .”

@SiyaOffice shared:

“Remain humble Noku, do not get arrogant. The truth is, there’s no difference in the workplace. An accountant is an accountant. You become a chartered accountant to become a member of a certain body, but that doesn’t change the accounting discipline.”

The Facebook post, which tells the story of Busisiwe Tshabalala, explains how the first half-year of her studies yielded very poor marks. Something that many people would take as a very bad sign. Instead of losing hope, Busisiwe kept on believing that she would eventually become a chartered accountant.

"Had you asked me then if I think I’d make it, I would’ve probably said YES with confidence because I’ve always believed that I will make it. The marks always told a different story but the Faith I had always told me that it will end in CA," wrote Busiswe.
