会计人对社会到底有多重要?       
2019-04-02

海恩皇家委员会(The Hayne Royal Commission)强调来自(财务)专业人士的信任和建议是不容小觑的,这一观点也得到了澳大利亚税务局(ATO)的认同,承认“完善的财务建议与小麻烦”之间只差一步。

对于寻求解决这一差距的人来说,澳大利亚公共会计师协会(IPA)认为他们可以从信任的顾问(会计师)那里获得真挚的建议和支持。

IPA执行总裁Andrew Conway表示:“生产力促进委员会(Productivity Commission)注意到,48%的澳大利亚成年人认为他们的财务咨询需求并没有得到满足。因此,财务咨询服务的缺口显然是一个澳大利亚现存的待解决问题。”

“其他研究还表明,大多数消费者为财务咨询服务打算支付的费用与财务规划师收取的平均费用之间存在差额,这就意味如果费用减少,大多数消费者将很乐意接受财务建议。

为了解决这些差距,澳大利亚公共会计师协会为拥有资质和经验的会计师们制定了经修订的金融服务许可制度。

来自澳洲三家专业会计机构的成员必须对自己持有高水平的专业和道德标准负责,接受持续的质量保证评估,并必须通过专业持续发展(CPD)及培训来保持知识的不断更新。”

海恩皇家委员会(The Hayne Royal Commission)
海恩皇家委员会专门负责银行、养老金和金融服务行业不当行为调查,也被称为银行皇家委员会,由澳大利亚政府根据《1902皇家委员会法案》于2017年12月14日成立。该委员会成立缘于媒体披露澳大利亚金融机构的贪婪文化。在注意到相关政府当局缺乏监管干预,金融机构参与贩毒集团洗钱,对恐怖主义融资视而不见,以及外汇交易不当行为后,议会调查后建议成立一个皇家委员会。
委员会必须进行相关的调查,但其无法解决个人纠纷,亦无法修复、给予赔偿或下令要求任何一方采取或不采取任何行动。
Kenneth Madison Hayne AC QC担任委员会唯一的理事。Kenneth Hayne AC QC于1992年被任命为维多利亚州最高法院法官,在维多利亚州上诉法院任职,直至1997年被任命为澳大利亚高等法院法官,2015卸任。 在高等法院退休后,他被任命为墨尔本大学墨尔本法学员的高级教授。2017年12月14日,Kenneth Hayne AC QC被任命为皇家委员,负责银行、养老金和金融服务行业不当行为的调查。

ACCOUNTANTS IN POSITION TO HELP FILL ADVICE GAP

The Hayne Royal Commission reinforced the importance of trust and seeking appropriate advice from professionals and this sentiment has been echoed by the ATO acknowledging there is a gap between ‘full financial advice and smaller matters’.

For people looking for a solution to this gap, the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) believes they should be able to get genuine advice and support from their trusted adviser; the accountant.

“The Productivity Commission observed that 48 per cent of Australian adults indicated having unmet financial advice needs. So, obviously there is an advice gap in Australia which needs to be addressed” said IPA chief executive officer, Andrew Conway.

“Other research indicates that there is a gap between the fees that most consumers are prepared to pay and the average fees being charged by financial planners, with the majority of consumers being open to having reviews with someone else if it meant a reduction in fees.

“To address these gaps the IPA has developed a revised financial services licensing regime for qualified accountants, which recognises their existing qualifications and experience.

“Members of the three professional accounting bodies are answerable to high levels of professional and ethical standards, subject to ongoing quality assurance evaluations, and must maintain currency of knowledge through committed and continuous professional development and training” said Mr Conway.
