The morning session is a case study approach to learning about fraud in financial statements. It is valuable for anyone who prepares and reports on financial statements. The focus is on real fraud cases, how they were executed, and how they could have been caught.

The afternoon session by Kenneth Heaslip details everything you need to know regarding the new "Hosting Services" interpretation of the “Independence Rule” (ET 1.295) in the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct which establishes requirements for CPAs that were developed with the new technology in mind. The principle underpinning the “Hosting Services” interpretation is that CPAs should not perform any activities for their clients that are management’s responsibility. The interpretation explains that taking responsibility for hosting an attest client’s data or records impairs a CPA’s independence. Ken will explain these rules in detail and how it applies to your practice. This afternoon session will satisfy the NYS requirement (as well as all states with a general ethics requirement) for your 4 ethics credits! Earn all your required ethics with this course.
