Course Description

CPAs many times have an opportunity to do business with clients beyond the straightforward monetary payment for legal services rendered. Sometimes clients wish to offer their CPA an ownership interest in a start-up business as payment for some services provided, or CPAs wish to acquire an interest in property owned by the client to secure payment for future fees. Sometimes a client would like to partner with their CPAs to pursue a new business opportunity, or sometimes a client simply cannot pay a bill and wishes to trade property the client owns or barter professional services for payment. Each of these situations is permissible, but all present a potential concurrent conflict of interest with a client. How to ethically navigate these conflicts is specifically regulated by regulatory ethics rules.  

Regulatory ethics is a body of law and practical political philosophy that governs the conduct of civil servants and the members of regulatory agencies. Every CPA has to follow these standards in order to complete fiduciary and professional responsibility.
