Professional Ethical Considerations for CPAs

Every CPA must comply with the AICPA’s Code of Professional Conduct, which is a hallmark of the CPA designation. CPAs in public practice must overcome higher barriers, such as when attest service providers must also retain independence. This course will provide an overview of the core principles from which the CPA profession is built upon.

  • Describe core principles underlying the AICPA’s Code of Professional Conduct that apply to both CPAs in public practice and industry
