The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Zimbabwe (ICAZ) is a professional accountancy body in Zimbabwe. It is the sole organization in Zimbabwe with the right to award the Chartered Accountant designation.[citation needed]

ICAZ is a member of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).[2] ICAZ was a charter member of the Pan African Federation of Accountants, which was inaugurated on 5 May 2011.[3] ICAZ is also a full member of the Eastern Central and Southern African Federation of Accountants.[4]

In January 2010, 134 candidates to become chartered accountants passed part one of the Qualifying Examinations. With 216 students sitting the examination, the pass rate was 62%.[5] On 28 June 2011 ICAZ hosted a one-day tax conference in Harare with focus on taxpayers' rights to tax privacy, customs valuation of goods and international commercial terms.[6]
