Ethics in accounting is of utmost importance to accounting professionals and those who rely on their services. Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and other accounting professionals know that people who use their services, especially decision makers using financial statements, expect them to be highly competent, reliable, and objective. Those who work in the field of accounting must not only be well qualified but must also possess a high degree of professional integrity.
CODES OF ETHICS
At GWI it is fundamental to uphold the high ethical standards of the accounting profession. A distinguishing mark of accounting professionals is acceptance of responsibilities to the public. GWI strives to uphold the code of ethics by the major professional associations for accountants--The Code of Professional Conduct of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) Standards of Ethical Conduct, and The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Code of Ethics
The codes of ethics of the AICPA, IMA, and IIA all require that confidential information known to accounting professionals not be disclosed to outsiders. GWI embraces these ethical standards both by the letter as well as the spirit.
While applicable to all accounting professionals, independence is especially important for GWI. The AICPA's rules pertaining to independence for CPAs who perform audits are detailed and technical. Maintaining integrity and objectivity calls for avoiding both actual and apparent conflicts of interest—i.e. independence. Remaining independent in fact and in appearance is of paramount importance at GWI. This translates into customers of GWI receiving only unbiased, impartial, and objective analysis and advice.
