The accounting and tax profession has faced many challenges in the last few years, to which we need to respond with a reflective assessment of our personal, professional and business ethics, as well as understanding the conflicts and ethical dilemmas we face on a daily basis.

In this 2 part series of webinars we will gain an understanding of how ethics works by considering practical examples and case studies. Our focus will be on what our responsibilities and obligations are and what actions should be taken by tax professionals when facing ethical dilemmas.

Join Caryn Maitland in these sessions that will provide a practical overview of Ethics and unpack the guidance that should be applied when faced with ethical dilemmas. The following key questions will be addressed:

Part 1

  • What does “ethics” mean?
  • What challenges are facing our profession?
  • What guidance is given in the SAIT Code of Professional Conduct?
  • When will a professional be considered independent?

Part 2

  • What key concepts in the Code of Professional Conduct should be applied by tax professionals?
  • What is NOCLAR and when will it be relevant?
  • What does the law say about Ethics?
  • What is the difference between “Professionalism” and “Commercialism”?
