THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Inaugural Branch Annual Summit, Mombasa
Date: 22nd – 24th August, 2018
Venue: Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa by PrideInn, Mombasa
The accountancy profession in Kenya has journeyed for over half a century from a less formal, unknown profession to a recognized and respectable role. Tasked with safeguarding public interest, accountants are not only responsible for proper financial management but also greatly contribute to the longevity of institutions. The Institute of Certified Public Accountants, ICPAK, as a regulator endeavours to develop the profession to world class standards and has made significant strides towards this goal.
As the Institute celebrates its 40th year of existence, it is an opportune time to take stock of the progress made so far while laying out strategies towards attaining set goals. An analysis of the last four decades reveals a path discernible by clear vision, focussed effort, agility and milestones achieved. The profession has faced noteworthy transformation in the recent years including the modernization of tax systems and new reporting standards. Public finance management reforms and devolution are further incidences which have altered the face of the profession in the country. Despite this dynamism, Kenya’s accountancy profession has continued to develop, becoming one of the biggest on the continent.
Today, the accountancy profession boasts of having grown in influence and being strategically placed to be the voice of reason on financial matters in the country. While challenges still abound, the profession is firmly on a path to professional pre-eminence.
The Inaugural Annual Summit will appraise the journey so far and discuss the outlook of accountancy through the following topics:
- The Future of Accountancy
- Fraud & Accountancy
- Ethics, Governance and Sustainability
- Emerging Tax Issues and Compliance
- Overview of the Draft Income Tax Bill
- Public Finance Management – The Increasing Role of CPAs
- The Public Debt Burden and its Implications
- Attitude as the Pacemaker in One’s Life
