This 6th and final webinar in the series provides an overview of the last 2 instalments (numbers 11 and 12) in the Exploring the IESBA Code Series and also highlights the effects that bias can have and the role and mindset expected of professional accountants in meeting public expectations. The “building blocks” structure of the Code and its interconnected nature will also be explored. 

The Code (Revised in October 2020) sets out the fundamental principles of ethics for professional accountants, reflecting the profession’s public interest responsibility. The principles apply to Public Accountants in Practice (PAPPs) and in Public Accountants in Business (PAIBs) – irrespective of their roles and responsibilities. 

One important aspect (among others) of the new provisions is a strengthening of the fundamental principle of objectivity, which requires accountants to exercise professional judgement or business judgement without being compromised by bias, conflict of interest, or undue influence or reliance.
