This CPD webinar describes the concepts underlying the application of Standard practices for investigative and forensic accounting (IFA) engagements that have been prepared by the IFA Standards Committee (Committee) of the Alliance for Excellence in Investigative and Forensic Accounting (IFA Alliance) and have been approved by the Board of the IFA Alliance.
These are the minimum standard practices that should be met by all chartered accountants conducting IFA engagements.
IFA practitioners should perform all IFA engagements in accordance with the standards of the chartered accountancy profession, including these IFA standard practices and the chartered accountants' Rules of Professional Conduct established by the Provincial Institutes / Ordre, and any other regulatory and legal requirements that may be applicable.
IFA standard practices are needed to protect the public interest by ensuring consistency to a minimum standard of practice.
IFA standard practices are different from IFA engagement procedures. Standard practices relate to the IFA practitioner's professional skills, the performance of his or her engagement, and the preparation of his or her report. IFA procedures are the specific acts or steps performed by the practitioner to attain his or her objectives in the particular engagement.
This CPD Canadian Accounting webinar course is a resource that will help IFA practitioners in exercising their professional judgment as to the implementation of these rules.
In this CPD Accounting webinar, speaker Mike Morley outlines an easy-to-understand step-by-step procedure for applying Standard practices for investigative and forensic accounting (IFA) and what needs to be carefully considered.
