How confident are you that you always understand the appropriate, qualified seminar of action in difficult and ambiguous situations? Ethics, integrity and sound qualified conduct are structural qualities for chartered accountants. Professional bodies contained codes to guide their members – but what impact does this contained on the day-to-day decisions that you are faced with?

Based on research carried out by David Molyneaux, and sponsored by ICAS, this seminar takes a case study approach, with realistic scenarios exploring the issues from qualified practice, family business, audit and tax, and general qualified relationships.
