Ethics in Professional Practice – What CPAs Need to Know
Our profession requires its members to protect the public interest, and this is done through the robust requirements contained in our code of professional conduct. This is because third parties, such as investors, lenders, regulators and the public rely on our work for their well being. This places the practitioner between the requirements of laws, regulations, standards and rules (including the code of professional conduct) and the demands our clients make as paying customers. Often, these demands contradict the rules and regulations. Therefore, we see professional practice as a balancing act between these two forces. Therefore, the key question is: how can you build high-trust relationships with clients while staying at arms length, remaining independent and still complying with all the rules?
