The need for high-quality and reliable financial reports for all sectors of the economy cannot be over-emphasized even during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. ICPAK aims to improve the quality of general-purpose financial reporting by entities to ensure that there is better informed assessment of resource allocation and utilization decisions, thereby enhancing accuracy, transparency, and accountability.
The training has been carefully tailored to meet the financial reporting requirements in view of the recent and current developments under the COVID-19 pandemic environment, and the emerging developments in reporting under the various financial reporting frameworks and guidelines for the different economic sectors.
The changing terrain during the COVID-19 pandemic period requires that users of audited financial statements place a lot of reliance on the information contained in these reports for purposes of decision making among other applications.
Thus, the need for high-quality, accurate, and reliable financial reports continues to be of great relevance even during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Institute aims at ensuring that the accuracy of these reports is maintained for all the sectors of the economy to enable enhanced confidence of the different categories of users.
It is equally critical that the users of the financial statements and annual reports obtain the relevant information to aid in decision making. The audit and assurance procedures which result into the audit report must therefore be reliable and compliant with the International Auditing and Assurance Standards.
Kenya has been at the forefront in the review of its tax framework. Over the pandemic period the government has instituted various measures ranging from what was known as COVID -19 tax relief measures, the ongoing review of the Income Tax Act and development of tax policy. Further, Kenya has been very active in shaping the international tax framework through the OECD Inclusive Framework. Through Finance Act 2021 proposed changes that are geared toward promoting the exchange of information and subsequently promote tax transparency.
Continuous review of tax mechanism has impacted heavily on the levels of tax compliance for taxpayers who have been affected by the pandemic. Increased scrutiny by the tax administration and the associated cashflow impacts calls for the need to always ensure tax compliance.
