What we cover

The Tax Professional and Ethical Obligations

With verifiable ethics training a requirement of some professional associations, this topic examines what it means to be a professional and the source of the ethical standards, specifically looking at:

  • When an accountant risks compromising the duty of acting honestly and with integrity
  • Why a tax agent’s failing to attend to their own taxation affairs is viewed as a breach of professional conduct
  • Wow a tax agent who has always acted for a couple can manage a conflict of interest when dealing with the taxation affairs of one of them after the couple divorces
  • Why an accountant cannot act as an auditor of their own SMSF
