A distinguishing mark of the tax profession is its acceptance of responsibility to act in the public interest. To this end the tax professional is not exclusively in service to satisfy client needs, but rather serves a higher purpose.
This compulsory training series is designed to empower the tax professional in developing practical applied knowledge of the standards, rules and regulations expected of and governing the tax profession. The training series will also illustrate its practical application in daily practice and/or employment.
This training series will be presented online (webinar), and will consist of the following modules:
Ethical obligations of Tax Professionals. Referencing the Code of Professional Conduct in Relation to Taxation and standards by-laws as a basis, the elements and principles of ethics applicable to the tax professional will be explained and expanded upon, using practical examples of actual disciplinary cases against tax professionals, where possible.
This module will consider ethics in general with specific reference to the importance ethics and integrity in the lifecycle of a tax professional. The module will also provide members with practical guidance on how to recognise and deal with ethical issues.
