Description

CPAs today face greater challenges than ever to maintain the high ethical standards of their profession. It is vitally important that all CPAs understand their professional responsibilities related to all aspects of their job. This course, which focuses on key components of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, reviews a history of the CPA profession and focuses on ethical requirements that CPAs must adhere to in their everyday practice, including practical examples of potential ethical dilemmas that practitioners may encounter, particularly those related to objectivity and independence. This course covers general ethics and is applicable for CPAs in states in which state-specific ethics are not required. However, this course does not qualify for IRS credit.

Highlights

  • Examine the CPA's role in today's economy
  • Compare similarities and differences between individual and business ethics
  • Explore the link between ethics, integrity and scruples
  • Discuss the basic attributes of ethics and professional conduct
  • Review the history of the CPA profession and the CPA's requirement to adhere to ethics policies and codes of conduct
  • Review the AICPA's Code of Professional Conduct and a CPA's responsibilities to the public, clients and colleagues
  • Discuss the common rules and statutes faced daily in the CPA profession. Case studies may also be utilized to present potential ethical dilemmas CPAs may face during their careers
  • Review CPA Independence violations by current legal case examples
