There will be a new method of competence where the practice skills of auditing methods would be in the focus of the candidates’ last exam. In 2019 the candidate still can chose whether he would like to take his last exam according to the previous or the new competence method.

There were quite a lot changes in 2019 regarding goverment rules on accounting eg. rules of pension funds, other organization and rules of Public Benefit Companies.
