About the Webinar

In today’s world of ever increasing amounts of complex legislation to either convey to clients or apply to the services offered to them, there are likely to be numerous times in the day of a public accountant where time and cost constraints impinge on providing those services to an optimum level. This session explores the day to day issues accountants in practice can face and strategies to ensure professional obligations are being met, including:

  • Dealing with:
    • situations where the budget/client spend doesn’t match the services considered necessary
    • a complex tax system that clients think is simple
  • When specialist advice is needed however client instruction is not forthcoming
  • Your obligations when a GST going concern exemption is in a client contract however you don’t consider the exemption conditions are met
  • Can an accountant segregate the services they will provide? ie. CGT and other income tax issues, but not GST?
  • The off the cuff client comment that “these records don’t include the cash” – what are the accountant’s obligations?
  • Interaction of risk and responsibility to client, staff, professional associations, the broader community and the practitioner themselves
  • Practical situations ie. mum and dad developer with a head in the sand approach to GST – what are the accountant’s obligations?
