The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica (ICAJ), with support from the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), will hold a regional SMP Forum on May 3 to bring practitioners from small- and medium-sized accountancy practices (SMPs) together for a day-long seminar to focus on audit quality and how practitioners can build a successful practice.
When/Where? The event will be held May 3, 2016, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica.
What? An international and regional line-up of subject matter experts will steer the forum and share important insights on pertinent areas of audit quality and practice management.
The line-up of speakers includes:

Both sessions will include an overview of relevant guidance, including the IFAC Guide to Practice Management.
