Description

Dr. Ray Thompson, CMA, CFM, CBA and William G. Engelbret, CPA, PhD, provide an fast-paced overview of the ethical responsibilities of a CPA working in public practice. If you attended the Ethics Update for CPAs in Public Practice in 2018 this course would be considered a duplicate and cannot be used towards your CPE requirement

Highlights

Use case studies to examine connections between ethics principles, formal rules, and the profession’s public responsibility. Review AICPA, state CPA societies, and state board ethics standards as they apply to small and medium CPA firms. Understand how the new ethics codification and the conceptual framework for resolving ethical issues will alter current practice. Hear about evolving issues, conflicts of interest, comfort letters, and recent revisions to the Ethics Code.
