澳洲会计界呼吁建立有效的监管框架       
2019-11-12

近日,来自澳洲的三家专业会计机构—公共会计师协会(IPA),澳大利亚和新西兰的特许会计师协会(CA ANZ)和澳洲会计师公会(CPA AU)联手回顾审核监管澳大利亚提供财务和税务建议的框架。

三家专业会计机构共同发布了一个宣传短片。视频中其中三个机构的首席执行官呼吁建立更有效的咨询服务监管框架,并承诺将共同倡导此项变革。

CA ANZ首席执行官Rick Ellis表示:“这些机构正在共同努力,以解决当前监管框架复杂性的问题,从而提供更广泛,更强大的解决方案,这将使企业和澳大利亚居民不仅能够获取所需的建议,而且能够贯彻该建议。

Ellis先生 说:“从皇家银行业委员会揭露出来的失败案例中展示了当前财务咨询框架的极端复杂性,而这些复杂案例参差不同。”

澳洲会计师公会首席执行官Andrew Hunter表示:“会计专业人士需要灵活地与客户交谈和互动的能力,但当在多种监管框架的环境下,这项能力通常会出现障碍,哪怕是同样的对话甚至是同一句话。”

IPA集团首席执行官Andrew Conway认为:“我们的共同目标是减轻协会会员的监管负担,因此我们保留了该行业的财务顾问。这是二十年来绝佳时机,我们有可能在市场上形成咨询业务的缺口。”

以上问题再加上FASEA(财务顾问标准与道德权威)的新教育和专业标准,以及对税务从业者委员会的最新审查以及皇家银行委员会的实施建议,这些都意味着存在着复杂性提升的真正威胁。

鉴于人口老龄化,强制退休金储蓄以及对金融知识的担忧,现在澳大利亚公民比以往任何时候都更需要获得他们可负担的优质财务建议。

三家会计组织针对财务咨询有清晰的关注重点,包括财务咨询的定义、业务牌照管理办法、以及协同的责任要求使得会员可以在多个法律框架下运营开展业务,为他们的客户提供咨询服务。


The Accounting Profession Calls For Efficient Regulatory Frameworks

1 November 2019
The three major professional accounting bodies – CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) and the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) – have joined forces to review the frameworks that regulate how financial and tax advice is provided in Australia.
CPA Australia, CA ANZ and IPA have released a video in which the CEOs of the three bodies call for more efficient regulatory frameworks for advisory services and pledge to work together in advocating for change.
CEO of CA ANZ Rick Ellis said “the bodies were working together on a broader and more robust solution to the complexity of the current regulatory framework that will enable both businesses and Australians to not only access the advice they need but understand that advice.
“The failures that were revealed from the Banking Royal Commission brought to light the extreme complexity of the current frameworks in financial advice which are not in sync with each other,” Mr Ellis said.
CEO of CPA Australia Andrew Hunter said, “accounting professionals need the flexibility to talk and engage with their clients – but this is often problematic when that advice falls under multiple regulatory frameworks in the same conversation, or even the same sentence.”
IPA Group CEO, Andrew Conway said “Our shared goal is to reduce the regulatory burden on our members, so we retain financial advisers in the industry. For the first time in the best part of two decades we are at a risk of creating an advice gap in the market.”
This - coupled with the new education and professional standards under FASEA and the current review of the Tax Practitioners’ Board and the implementation of the recommendations from the Banking Royal Commission means there is a very real threat of added complexity.
Given the impacts of an ageing population, forced retirement savings, and ongoing concerns around financial literacy, now more than ever Australians need access to affordable, quality advice.
The three bodies have a clear focus to revisit definitions, licensing regimes and to harmonise obligations where members operate under multiple regulatory frameworks to provide the advisory services to their clients.
