The 1st of July 2022 marks the first anniversary of the effective date of The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA). However, a large contingent of businesses are not yet fully compliant with POPIA. 

POPIA is national legislation that your clients must comply with, and which accountants must ensure compliance with.  Accountants have certain reporting obligations in terms of NOCLAR (Non-Compliance with Laws and Regulations).  Appropriate action includes the accountant reporting the applicable non-compliance to management, evaluating the appropriate disclosure of the non-compliance in annual financial statements, issuing a qualified audit opinion, reporting the non-compliance as a reportable irregularity, etc.
