EVENT DESCRIPTION

This is a refresher course for CPAs in public practice, updating their knowledge and practice of Ethics in the Accounting profession. The participants will test themselves on their knowledge, work on actual problems individually and in small groups, and discuss cases to help them understand the difficulties that may exist, and that the best decisions in a particular situation are not necessarily obvious. The instructor will review the Code of Professional Conduct (CPC), decisions of the Discipline Committee, as well as other relevant sources with emphasis on interacting with clients and governmental authorities. In addition, the theory of Ethics will be reviewed. The attendees will find that they are better able to recognize potential problems and act to reflect best practices in their own accounting firm.
