THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

SMP Compliance Toolkit

Theme; Practical Challenges in Growing Small & Medium Audit Practice Firms

Date: 17th July 2018,

Venue: Sarova Panafric, Nairobi

Time: 9am to 4pm

1.0  Overview

It is always very exciting to start up and grow a business especially in the area of your professional competence. Accountancy is one such a profession. However, in the recent past, Auditing and Assurance services have been facing a number of challenges hence leading to a slow growth in number and members keen to becoming practitioners. This is more so after the passing of the new Companies Act 2015 that raised the bar for audit requirement. Most members start small firms characterized by inherent challenges and bottlenecks detrimental to growth.

In view of this, ICPAK has organized a one-day forum to induct new and upcoming practitioners in Small & Medium sized firms on matters that affect practice firm professionalism, growth and development. The forum will facilitate knowledge sharing, networking and exchange of ideas among audit and accounting practitioners in order to enable them acquire in-depth knowledge and skills in diverse areas of SMP operations.

The Institute has lined up practicing subject matter experts to deliver, guide and steer discussions on topics that best support establishing, managing and growing successful audit firms and accounting practices.

Some of the areas to be covered include:

  1. Practice Management Guide for SMP
  • Module 1- Planning for your Firm.
  • Module 2- Practice Models, Associations and Networks.
  • Module 3- Building and growing your firm.
  • Module 4- People power; Developing a people strategy
  • Module 5- Leveraging Technology
  • Module 6- Client relationship
  • Module 7- Risk Management
  • Module 8- Succession planning
