Ethics: Protecting the Integrity of Florida CPAs  (4980)

CPAs often face difficult, unusual, and challenging situations when dealing with clients, employers, and regulatory authorities.  The objective of this course is to remind you that a framework exists that you can refer to for guidance to determine the expectations for your behavior as a Florida CPA.  That framework is based on the Florida Statutes, the Rules of the Florida Board of Accountancy, and the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct. Through interactive dialogue and discussion we will focus on the application of specific rules and requirements within that framework and recent trends in business and professional ethics.
