Webinar: A CPA's Guide to Avoiding Trouble

Description

The CPA profession is constantly under scrutiny. The top malpractice issues facing today’s CPA are the same issues/themes that have faced us for over three decades. Many issues and risk management strategies remain the same, but some are new and others have changed. CPAs must be prepared to meet their clients’ challenges and the risk of others who may rely upon their work. To address these challenges, professionals must be attentive to threats and respond with risk management best practices. CAMICO’s understanding of the accounting profession is integral to the development of this presentation, which offers insight into practice risks, how to avoid getting into trouble and how to get out of it when you do. Use these concepts and tools to make risk management a profitable component of your practice.
