CPAR Ethics

CPAR - 2019/January, Seg.04 - How the New Ethics Code Will Affect Your Standards

Course Overview
On the whole, accountants and financial managers do tend to be honest and do want to be ethical. But if they are professionals, and if they do try to act professionally, is it really necessary for them to have an ethics code? Fortunately, we assembled a group of three experts who are members of the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants to address the issue: Dr. Stavros Thomadakis of Greece; Caroline Lee of Singapore; and Ian McPhee of Australia.

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Define what is meant by "professional skepticism";
