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.

  • To recall the independence as promulgated by the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and understand its importance to the CPA.
