SEPTEMBER 5, 2017 RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
Are you an accounting professional or someone who works closely with the profession? If so, I invite you to join a new LinkedIn group called "CPA Ethics and Independence," which I will moderate to bring members the latest news and other points of interest on these important topics.
The group is limited to accounting professionals and persons who work with the profession (e.g. regulators, attorneys, audit committee members, etc.). We share information about the CPA profession's ethical responsibilities, including auditor independence. Members may also post questions about the AICPA Code of Conduct, GAO Yellow Book independence rules, the SEC and PCAOB independence, the IESBA Code and ethics rules of other relevant regulatory bodies, e.g., IRS Circular No 230.
This group may be particularly helpful to quality control managers and directors, CPAs in public practice and industry, academics, attorneys/legal counsel, accountancy boards and boards of director/audit committee members. Accounting students may also join.
