Seminar & webinar: Engagements for accountants and accounting officers – 5 CPD hours – Aug 2015


Various pieces of legislation impacting accountants have been changed and/or introduced since 2009. The business reality is that companies are no longer required to prepare audited financial statements. Clients, banks, SARS and CIPC now require accountants to issue compilation, accounting officer or independent review reports. This changing landscape provides a business opportunity for professional and business accountants in practice.
