Below is the list of the necessary skills that one needs to have in order to become a chartered accountant:


1. The first and the foremost thing in this regard is that the chartered accountants need to learn about the accountancy and the various factors involved with it. This is the core part of their job and therefore they need to have the right skills to do that. They need to know how to keep and maintain the records and what to do with that information.

2. The chartered accountants should have sharp skills of playing with numbers and doing the calculations. They should be quick enough to do those calculations and come out with their results and analysis so fast.

3. They need to be very good with their analytical skills. A number of times they will be required to have the analysis done based on the data and facts provided by the clients. The way they analyze the data and derive results essentially tell how good their work is.

4. The chartered accountants need to learn various software that they would be working on during their project. The clear understanding of using these software is very important and they should have the clear idea about the various aspects of these tools. That would help them save a lot of time and resources.

5. They have to be really very good in their communication skills as that will again be an important part of their work while meeting with the clients. They have to maintain the clear communications with the clients and other team members and therefore are required to have nice communication skills both written and oral communication skills.

6. The chartered accountants need to be very good team players and should be able to contribute really well while working in the team settings. They should also be able to assist their fellow team members whenever required and guide them with the suitable information if possible. They need to learn how to be an effective team player and finish the things nicely while working with a diverse group of people.
