Message from the Chair/President of CA

Post by chuck_meister » Tue Jun 27, 2017 4:58 pm

A colleague forwarded this message from the president of CA to all of its members.


Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (Chartered Accountants ANZ) has a long tradition of setting, and meeting, high standards around corporate governance and transparency. These standards are both expected by you, and applied by you every day in your work with businesses and the community.

You will have noted some of the media coverage that relates to CPA Australia. While this is a matter for CPA Australia to comment and reflect on, these events should not detract from the important work that accountants do every day to build businesses and contribute to communities across Australia, New Zealand and internationally, be they members of Chartered Accountants ANZ, or any other professional organisation. We are discussing with regulators options to provide support to our members who are partners in CPA Australia firms and their clients should the Australian limitation of liability schemes administered by CPA Australia lapse.

As always, Chartered Accountants ANZ continues to focus on serving you and empowering you to be leaders and shapers in finance and business. We will continue being a positive policy partner for governments and regulators, advising them in key policy areas that impact not just our industry, but more broadly, the economy. To that end, Chartered Accountants ANZ will continue to offer assistance to government and regulators as a key representative of the accounting profession.
