Non-compliance with laws and regulations
All professional accountants now have increased responsibility in relation to suspected or actual breaches of any law and regulation due to the changes in APES 110 Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants.
Significant global entities (ATO)
Australian entities who are part of a group with global revenue > AUD$1bn are required to lodge general purpose financial statements with the ATO which will then be placed on ASIC’s public record. Deadline for lodgement is 31 March 2018 for June 2017 reporters.
