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 webinar provides insight into the rationale and philosophy behind the rules. You’ll learn about:

  • Independence, integrity and objectivity
  • Frivolous complaints and discreditable acts
  • Professional standards
  • Ways to protect yourself
  • Confidential client information

Speaker and author, Allison M. McLeod, LL.M., CPA, will educate and inform CPAs not just on what is the right thing to do according to the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct but how to put your values into action! As part of this course, we will also look at various schools of ethical thought and walk through real-world examples of individuals and companies faced with moral dilemmas.

Learning Objectives

  • To identify the integrity and objectivity as promulgated by the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and understand its importance to the CPA.
  • To identify situations where the CPA may be susceptible to subordinating his/her judgment to a client or employer.
  • To recall the independence as promulgated by the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and understand its importance to the CPA.
  • To recognize the ascertain situations which could threaten a CPA’s independence.

This was one of the best CPE webinars I've ever done. The instructor was outstanding, keeping my interest for all 3.5 hours. Her selection of case studies and her ability to relate them to our ethical standards was remarkable. I truly enjoyed this CPE session, which is something I may have said 3-4 times in my entire career.

LD

This was an ethics course. I feel that ethics really isn't something that you can teach. That said, the use of relevant case studies and engaging commentary by the instructor was thought provoking, which made the course very effective.

JR

The webinar was great. Kept my attention the entire time. Great examples and case studies helped in understanding the subject matter.

KD

Presenter was dynamic and the fact that it started 6:30AM PST, woke me up with her stories and got my engagement from the first story. Best Ethics course I have ever attended. Thanks for helping me meet my CPE requirements, sharing the stories of these companies, and reminding us of our stewardship and social responsibilities in the profession we have chosen.

AH

This ethics course was amazing. Drawing parallels between professional obligations, moral duty and illuminating these concepts with relevant case studies. Excellent work Allison!

KH

This was probably the best ethics CPE class I have taken in the past 35 years that I have been a CPA. Allison kept me engaged and interested the whole time. Excellent use of case studies to keep it interesting and relevant. Great job!
