Exclusive ISCPA Member Benefit
Ethical dilemmas are often recognized too late. The landscape for CPAs is all the more dangerous when clients or third parties push the boundaries. The traps are frequently difficult to perceive, and more dangerous if the accountant has started down the slippery slope of rationalization. This presentation will use CAMICO “war stories” and Loss Prevention “Hotline” inquiries to bring to life these traps and often overlooked ethical requirements. Requirements clarified will include the AICPA Code of Conduct, U.S. Treasury Circular 230 and the AICPA’s Conceptual Framework.
