TOWN HALL MEETING ON ACCOUNTANTS AMENDMENT BILL 2021 AND REGULATIONS 2021 – KISUMU
The enactment of the Accountants’ Act in 2008 provided for the establishment, powers and functions of the Institute and the Examinations Board. Despite the robust legal provisions in the Accountants Act 2008, there has been no regulations to operationalize the Act. Key provisions in the Act require further prescriptions to ensure full implementation of the law and bring clarity in the interpretation of the law.
