DESCRIPTION

The Namibian Public Accountants’ and Auditors’ Act, 1951 (the “PAA Act”) commenced on 1 November 1951, having been assented to on 18 June 1951 in pre-Independence Namibia. The current PAA Act is originally a law of the Republic of South Africa. When Namibia obtained independence in 1990, the Act was adopted as the law of Namibia, and has remained so to-date.

The purpose of the PAA Act was to provide for the establishment of the Public Accountants’ and Auditors’ Board (“PAAB”) to regulate the auditing profession. The Act further provided for the registration of public accountants and auditors and for the regulatory and
supervisory functions of the PAAB in relation to them.

Having been operationalised for just short of 70 years, it has become necessary and indeed urgent to review the legal framework for the regulation of accountants and auditors in Namibia, especially since many aspects of the PAA Act are outdated.

The Accountants and Auditors Bill has been drafted with the aim to repeal the PAA Act, 1951 and to modernise the legal and regulatory framework within which accountants and auditors conduct business in Namibia.
