Ethics for Bookkeepers 2021

To discuss ethics for the bookkeeping profession with attendees. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

By the end of this event the participant should:

  • Understand the new environment and role of the bookkeeper;
  • Understand the ethical pressure on bookkeepers at the moment;
  • Understand the ethical duties of the bookkeeper and how these would apply in practice;
  • Understand the penalties for non-compliance; and 
  • Understand international norms and legislative prescription on ethics and compliance.

DESCRIPTION

Advances in technology and business accounting software are having a huge impact on the role of the bookkeeper as we once knew it. Where the bookkeeper only used to focus on capturing documents and maintaining accounts, there is now a definite shift towards new value-adding tasks. Two of these tasks are: 

  • Bookkeepers are now playing an advisory role to clients regarding their accounting software and what type of data should be provided and how it should be provided, with the aim of assisting good decision-making.
  • Bookkeepers are now managers of data rather than data capturers. The focus has shifted to data integrity and security. 

The arrival of these new tasks brings heightened focus on the subject of ethics and compliance. There is now more pressure from society and professional bodies to make bookkeepers comply and demonstrate compliance with ethics.
