The International Accountancy Education Day on the 10th of November has been observed by countries across the globe. In light of this, The South Asian Federation of Accountants (SAFA) has decided to join the world in illuminating the importance of accounting and the people in the profession and therefore celebrate the International Accountancy Education Day on November 10th this year.

The date, November 10th, happens to bear great significance for the accountancy community. Italian Mathematician and Franciscan friar, Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli authored a book titled “Summa de Arithmetica Geometria Proportioni et Propotionalita” (Everything about Arithmetic, Geometry and Proportion) which was published in Venice on November 10, 1494. First of its kind, the book aimed to summarize the mathematical knowledge of that time period. It is considered to be the first printed essay on double entry bookkeeping called “Method of Venice” and was a direct base of some widespread works on mercantile accounting.

The SAFA President, Mr. ASM Nayem FCA, ICAB Acting President Mr. Mostafa Kamal FCA, the Chairman of Dhaka Regional Committee- ICAB Mr. Muhammad Aminul Hoque FCA and SAFA Executive Secretary Mahbub Ahmed Siddique FCA ushered the rally from Hatirjheel all the way to CA Bhaban in Karwan Bazar, Dhaka.
