Programme Objective

The aim of the three-day ISCA Public Practice Programme is to provide practical insights to aspiring CAs (Singapore) who have the intention to become CAs (Singapore) with Certificate for Practice. The programme provides a framework for and looks at the business resources required in the setting up of a public practice.

Programme Outline

The Programme covers the following subject matter:

  • The Practitioner and the Regulatory Environment
    • The primary objective is to uphold public interest for the benefit of society as a whole. There is a review of the principal laws, regulations and promulgations which apply to public practice. The ISCA and ACRA Codes of Professional Conduct and Ethics and anti-money laundering procedures are covered in this segment as well as the various standards and practice notes and guidance in the ISCA Members Handbook.
  • The Practitioner and Management of the Professional Firm
    • The focus is on the practice and procedures that a firm should have in place to ensure efficient running of the practice. These include procedures to ensure that the firm addresses and demonstrates its compliance with ethical requirements, office procedures on staff management, engaging with clients and managing engagement risks.
  • The Practitioner and Business Considerations
    • The objective is to discuss matters such as the business metrics of a CA firm as well as an appropriate compensation package commensurate with the risks of being in practice and how that compensation is generally shared among partners in the firm. This section will also allow CAs (Singapore) to reflect on why they are choosing public practice as a career option, the personal characteristic they may need, the economic and business realities and the overriding public interest obligation.
