Apply to become a member
How to register
Visit our Member Portal to submit an application for membership or associateship of SAICA.
Note if you have completed SAICA articles (learnership) or the qualifying examinations or you previously booked an event with us or are an ex-member or an ex-associate, then you have an existing online profile that you need to use to access the Member Portal. Your username will be the email address we have on our database. If you have not yet set up a password for the Member Portal, visit the Member Portal and click on the “Login” menu then the “Forgot your password?” menu to create a new password.
If you have changed your email address or experience any other difficulty in setting up your password, please contact us on +27 11 621 6600 for assistance.
For those applicants that do not have a SAICA online profile, there is option on the Member Portal to “Sign Up” for an individual profile. Note, when using the “Sign Up” button on the Member Portal the system will be creating two logon credentials to access the Member Portal and the general SAICA website. Meaning you will have two separate logon credentials for the Member Portal and the SAICA website. You will be provided with a username and temporary password to access the website by email, however to access the Member Portal you will need to create your own password once you receive an email from ***@SAICA.onmicrosoft.com instructing you to setup a password.
For more information on why we have two separate logon credentials please visit the Ushintsho Programme page.
Once you have a username and password for the Member Portal, then you are ready to logon to the Member Portal and apply for membership or associateship of SAICA.
