Course Description

To provide a service that increases confidence in the information, the independent professional providing it has to stimulate trust, not only as a provider of the service but also in the process the professional uses to deliver it. There is a range of assurance services that can be provided to enhance confidence in the information. The specific service to be applied is based on the entity's objectives and generally is determined by the engaging party in consultation with the assurance service provider. 

The AICPAs Code of Professional Conduct guides ethical business conduct, as well as other potentially relevant ethical requirements from the PCAOB and international bodies. An important pillar of any Code of Professional Conduct is the rules governing independence when performing attest services, particularly when both attest and non-attest services are provided. 

This online CPE course will dig deeper into important foundational principles, primarily focusing on threats to independence and how to avoid or appropriately safeguard them.

Major topics covered in this Ethics webinar are:

  • Overview of the Conceptual Framework approach to identify threats to principles of the Code of Professional Conduct.
  • Broad categories of threats include familiarity, self-interest, self-review, and other independence threats.
  • General requirements and management responsibilities when performing both attest and non-attest services for the same client.
  • Safeguards for common independence threats.
