To provide an organisation for ASEAN Accountants for the further advancement of the status of the profession in the region with the view to establishing an ASEAN philosophy on the accounting profession.
AFA Co-hosted the First of the ICAEW-IAI-AFA Webinar Series 2020
Together with the Institute of Chartered Accountant in England and Wales (ICAEW) and Ikatan Akuntan Indonesia or the Institute of Indonesia Chartered Accountants (IAI), AFA successfully co-hosted the first of the joint ICAEW – IAI – AFA Webinar Series 2020. More than 1,000 participants from around the region tuned into the 2-hour session, highlighting the strong interest of ASEAN accountants on the latest issues impacting the profession. The webinar is part of the joint efforts between AFA and the AFA member organisations in providing ASEAN accountants with access to online development (CPD) activities.
The discussion focused on key challenges faced by practitioners, policies introduced by governing authorities and measures taken by professional bodies to respond to the situation. Participants highlight valuation and impairment, various disclosure and practical audit issues for both private entities and Government institutions as some of the key implications of COVID-19.
AFA would like to thank IAI and ICAEW for their cooperation in hosting the joint webinar. Our appreciation also to IAI, ICAEW and MIA for nominating the three panellists.
