Ac­coun­tants and au­di­tors re­ceive CPA and PCA war­rants and cer­tifi­cates

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Three hun­dred and six­teen Cer­ti­fied Pub­lic Ac­coun­tant war­rants and Prac­tis­ing Cer­tifi­cates in Au­dit­ing were pre­sented by the Min­is­ter for Fi­nance Ed­ward Sci­cluna, dur­ing a cer­e­mony held at Hast­ings Gar­dens, Valletta.

Dur­ing his ad­dress, the min­is­ter un­der­lined the im­por­tance of the pro­fes­sional train­ing that the ac­coun­tants and au­di­tors re­ceived as part of their for­ma­tion.

Min­is­ter Sci­cluna explained that the re­cip­i­ents of the war­rant now had great re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. The pub­lic will be trust­ing them to carry out work with pro­fes­sion­al­ism, in­tegrity and good faith.

He explained how the ac­coun­tancy pro­fes­sion acts as the back­bone of the skill-set pro­vided by the Mal­tese work­force and em­pha­sised that such a pro­fes­sion also con­trib­utes to the at­trac­tive­ness of the lo­cal fi­nan­cial sec­tor for for­eign in­vest­ment.

A to­tal of 316 Cer­ti­fied Pub­lic Ac­coun­tant war­rants and Prac­tis­ing Cer­tifi­cates in Au­dit­ing were handed out dur­ing the cer­e­mony; 216 ac­coun­tants re­ceived the CPA war­rant, 22 au­di­tors re­ceived the PCA and 78 re­ceived both the CPA war­rant and the PCA.

The min­is­ter con­grat­u­lated all the ac­coun­tants and au­di­tors for their achieve­ment and wished them well for all their fu­ture en­deav­ours.

The cer­e­mony was also at­tended by Ac­coun­tancy Board chair­man, Peter Bal­dacchino and Board sec­re­tary, Martin Spi­teri.
