Course Description

A CPA is challenged in today’s work world to not only serve his/her client or employer but also to protect the public interest by ensuring that there is transparency in financial reporting or there is fair administration of the tax laws. In balancing the two interests, a CPA may find him or herself in an ethical dilemma. This course covers not only basic ethical frameworks, but also specific rules from the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, Washington Public Accountancy Act, and the Board Rules found in the Washington Administrative Code. These sources govern the practice and responsibilities of Washington CPAs. It concludes with a section on how a CPA can put his or her ethics into action.

Learning Objectives

  • To educate licensees in ethics of professional accounting as CPAs.

  • To assist the CPA in applying ethical judgment in interpreting the rules and determining public interest. Public interest should be placed ahead of self-interest, even if it means a loss of job or client.

It was a great set of updates regarding the Washington statues and rules for the CPAs and for me it was an additional benefit as i was short of my CPE credit. Great content and spectacular speaker. Definitely, I will refer to my colleagues.
