It is our goal to reach out to our members and the wider core knowledge to cope with the current situation in the accountancy profession where financial reporting has become increasingly complex. The TUEs program is an important gateway of our services. During the year, our TUEs program is mainly dedicated to address matters of topical interest such as updates on new and revised HKFRSs and some fundamental topics. In addition, sessions covering latest auditing and ethics issues are also included. The aim of the series of sessions is to provide our members and the participants with a detailed run through of the provisions of the standard and as refresher sessions on the basics and to the changes. We urge you to join in with us in these sessions, a good opportunity to refresh on what you have learnt previously and to get well versed with the standards once again.
