In the US there isn’t an equivalent that is accepted for manager promotion. So you’ll probably need to earn a US CPA when you’re here in order to be promoted. DM and I can send you their contact info.

There’s really limited options to hire you as a foreign worker unless you transfer with BDO to their LA office using an L1 intra company visa or the Big 4 sponsor you for an H1B visa which requires you to win a lottery in March of each year.

Your chances are higher with BDO USA using the L1B visa

As someone said before, firms don’t usually sponsor foreign workers unless it’s a inter company transfer (L visa) or a foreign student in an American college. You should talk to BDO USA; I recently moved to BDO and I know we use BDO South Africa a lot (even contractors in SA)…that would be the easiest and quicker way to come to the US

Thank you I will do!

Do you have a CPA. Without it you wouldn’t transfer at the manager level anyways. There’s a partner here from S/A maybe I can put you in contact to talk ?

So I would be completing the equivalent to CPA next year. I am already qualified chartered management accountant with CIMA. That would be great if you could

Manager?

Audit senior currently but would be manager if I stayed but would apply for a lower position to secure sponsorship

You'd only be sponsored if the employer can show that they can't find a qualified US candidate to fill the role. We hired a few people from Deloitte India. You would either need some specialized skill or have CPA / be a manager or higher. If you're brought it as a senior, they'd need to get creative.

I was H1b and I was hired since associate

Dm me i can help

So apparently EY believes that moving to unlimited PTO will provide a first mover/differentiator advantage amongst the big 4..

None of us asked for this and they are doing it primarily to reduce PTO accrual liability for layoffs/in states where employers are limited in taking away earned PTO
