Course Description

A CPA is challenged in today’s work world to not only serve his/her client or employer but also to protect the public interest by ensuring that there is transparency in financial reporting or there is fair administration of tax laws.  In balancing the two interests, a CPA may find him or herself in an ethical dilemma. This course covers not only basic ethical frameworks, but also specific rules from the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, the Washington Public Accountancy Act, and the Board Rules found in the Washington Administrative Code.  These sources govern the practice and responsibilities of Washington CPAs. It concludes with a section on how a CPA can put his or her ethics into action.

Learning Objectives: 


  • To educate licensees in the ethics of professional accounting as CPAs.

  • To convey the intent of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, the Washington Administrative Code, and the Washington Public Accountancy Act in the performance of professional accounting services/work, not to adhere to the mere technical compliance of such rules.

  • To assist the CPA in applying ethical judgment in interpreting the rules and determining public interest. Public interest should be placed ahead of self-interest, even if it means the loss of a job or client.

  • To review the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and the Washington Administrative Code and the Washington Public Accountancy Act and to discuss their implications for persons in a variety of practices, including:

    • CPAs in client practice of public accountancy who perform attest and non-attest services.

    • CPAs employed in the industry who provide internal accounting and auditing services.

    • CPAs employed in education or in government accounting or auditing.
