It's time to rebrand and position of the CPA. The market is disturbed by new business models that realize that CPAs have generally spent less in the preparation of financial information and certification. Some accounting professionals promote certificates as a trusted advisor, or could bring cognitor (just kidding).

At this point, I am in favor of placing the world approved accounting as a brand for accountants who specialize in different areas of the audit. With the powers that surround the CGMA revolve around four skill areas as follows:
  •     Technical skills;
  •     Business skills;
  •     Social skills; Y,
  •     Leadership Skills
CGMA advantage is that it contains the word "accountant" and this type of meter and certification can position themselves as trusted business advisor. In fact, the Board of Directors of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants approved a resolution at its fall meeting in October paving the way for enlargement eligible for designation. We need to broaden what the public thinks of when they think of APC and CBCAA CGMAs or designation - Certified Business Consultant Accounting Consultant.

At this point, I think it's all about marketing what a CPA, but a different designation would go a long way in helping CPAs preserve and promote our services.

In a recent internet search, I find many definitions. Some of them start with the basics: "an individual who has passed the Uniform CPA examination." Some definitions cover the basic functions of a CPA, as Investopedia: "In fact, almost all current accounting firms offer three main areas of expertise:. 1. Trade Advisory Services 2 accounting and recordkeeping 3. Advice.. tax. There is a fourth area called verification, but not every company offers this service, even if it is the only service that only APC can perform by law ".

It might be time for us to redefine the term "counter", so I think it's time for organizations that support most of APC to perform any other audit to take action.

Technology has changed the name of the game and allowed all accounting firms to automate most of the "accounting function or process" recording, classifying and summarizing transactions, and place them in a balance in spreadsheet. Smart meters are becoming more consultative and strategic. That's why I see "Business Advisor" or "advice" to become the lead service as we go.

A quick survey of websites of major companies of all sizes - from the big four new pioneers - shows that are being consulting services, not emphasizing their status as APC, but emphasizing can help its customers to be more effective.

The bottom line is, it's time to make sure that when you look at the definition of a certified accountant or other designation similar statements are the following:

A CPA is a person who has passed the Uniform CPA and received state certification to practice accounting and the provision of advisory services to help customers be more profitable, liquid and solvent or CGMA CBCAA examination.

For Myriam Madden, director of finance and chairman of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), there was no awareness before leaving school opportunities that the business world could offer.
And they want to travel, she said: "I had that curiosity about business, and I decided I wanted to know more about what makes a successful company."
Madden's career has enabled him to achieve two ambitions, visiting companies around the world and get a sectional view of how they work.
His CV includes leading roles change programs and financial functions in organizations such as Hewlett Packard, HBOS, the Scottish Arts Council, the NHS and Historic Scotland.
She says her desire to make a contribution in the world of business was strengthened when studying for a business degree, and when he looked to the work by CIMA said it appeared to influence key decision makers of the company, such as CEOs and CFO.
The organization is the largest professional organization in the world Management Accountants, trying to help people and companies in the public and private sectors.
Graduate, Madden joined Hewlett Packard in Edinburgh, when the technology giant was looking for graduates with a business background, "he played so much that I wanted to do"
She stayed with the company from 1987 to 2002, working for spin-off Agilent Technologies in telecommunications roles including manager of an agreement to acquire the US, European internal consultant based in London and director of support companies.
Still a resident of Edinburgh to date have already been added to travel a little further, including assignments in the United States and Europe.
While it is clear that there are differences in corporate culture throughout the world, the president of CIMA believes that eventually all the challenges that businesses face are very similar, and accounting management can address these to "on for business success, "regardless of the location of a business.
She was named president of CIMA 2015-16 in the summer and said it was a "fantastic" experience so far, leading to an organization with over 227,000 members and students in more than 170 countries.
One of his goals, he said, was to shake some of the "baggage" that can become a professional organization. "One of my motivations was really draw attention to CIMA as very modern, very dynamic, and meet the needs of the company," says Madden.
It also highlights the ethics and integrity as a key priority and "something that anchors us in all our students from the beginning and our members as they progress through their careers."
He specializes in financial and operational transformation, directed change programs in organizations with different needs and corporate cultures.
These projects can be "very difficult," he admits. "Very often, the obstacles may be the people who buy into the change that needs to be done."
Madden says it is necessary to work in the way of "putting people along this journey ... How to put a frame around it to make it easier to understand?"
Having worked in the public and private sectors, his resume includes part of HBOS between 2002 and 2004, where he led the development of project information tool for financial and operational services. He then joined the Scottish Arts Council, to boost the financial performance in a period of change and simplify the legal structures for a merger. And from May 2012, she was Director of Finance of Historic Scotland.
She said her varied experience has been very useful to him, saying: "I would encourage anyone starting their career to try as many things as you can experience expands and you can also find your own niche.".
Madden and, perhaps not surprisingly, is far from shy about recommending the world of finance and business for young people looking around a career plan.
"I think there is a fund management accounting gives a fantastic start - it just gives you that view across the enterprise," he said.
"Money makes the world, and in fact, you must understand how it makes the world."

Additional CIMA-Web Connections Identified: 

  A total of five people working for the Monetary Authority of the Cayman Islands have been identified as having a "bond" with Jeffrey Webb, the man in the Cayman Islands and formal business of the deposed FIFA defendant in an investigation into organized crime and corruption United States shocked the world of football.
Chairman of the Monetary Authority of Grant Stein said Tuesday that five people, he did not name, should excuse himself from any involvement in the ongoing review of local transactions related to the US probe and FIFA CIMA.

"My opinion is that there are five people on CIMA that link to Jeff Webb," Stein said, "all of which have challenged the review."

Stein said he was not aware of any connections between Webb and five employees, but Cayman is a small island, not the existence of such close ties are particularly surprised. Most of the connections involved either direct family ties or marriage ties, he said.

The issue of conflicts emerged in early June when it was revealed that the CEO of CIMA husband Cindy Scotland, former government minister Mark Scotland, has been working since last year to the Football Association of Cayman Islands under its President Webb and Webb was in Switzerland at the time of his arrest on May 27. In addition, the wife of former Minister Cline Glidden, Gloria serves as deputy head of the banking division of the CIMA. Mr. Glidden was working for CONCACAF in the creation of a regional court settlement of disputes and football was also Webb in Switzerland during the annual meeting of the FIFA before the arrests.

Mr. Stein said there were no allegations of wrongdoing against Scotland, either Mr. or Mr. Glidden probe FIFA.

The new president of CIMA revealed Tuesday that global Krys was retained by the authority to conduct forensic audits of all transactions related to Webb or former resident Costas Takkas Cayman, which are responsible for the criminal investigation in the United States.

Forensic accountants probe will be monitored by a committee of three officials CIMA staff by the head of the CIMA of the bank Ilako Charles, responsible for compliance RJ Berry and Assistant General Counsel Andre Mon Desir. When the test is complete, the Committee will report on the results of the accounting "non-executive" CIMA - ie without the CEO being present CIMA.

The purpose of the appointment of the committee, Mr. Stein said, was to separate the investigations and forensic accounting consultants CIMA made in local financial transactions mentioned in the indictment of US where the regulatory authority can have "connections" Webb, Stein said.

At least one current and one former bank Cayman Islands, Fidelity and Barclays, were named in connection with allegations of US Federal Court, although neither the bank was accused of irregularities in the court records.

For now, the committee CIMA and forensic accountants to focus only on operations Fidelity Bank identified in the indictment of America published on 27 May, Stein said. If there were other areas of concern identified in the context of the review, the investigation could grow, he said.

The charges:


Senior officials from Fidelity Bank in the Cayman Islands have confirmed in early June Webb remained employed in the bank in a contract part-time consultant until the end of 2012, including the period in which he is accused of soliciting bribes from intermediaries in the exchange of the granting of the marketing rights for certain football competitions of FIFA.

According to US accusations of the Federal Court, separate bribes channeled through the US payments, Hong Kong and the Cayman Islands bank accounts were negotiated in 2012 with then Vice President of FIFA and powerful Secretary General Webb CONCACAF Enrique Sanz, who is identified in the indictment as "co -conspirator No. 4".

The indictment alleges that the discussions were in 2012 to negotiate the media and marketing rights to the qualifying round of 2018 and 2022 World Cup. These rights were being sought by the US subsidiary of trafficking Group, based in Brazil - US Traffic - I wanted to buy the rights to the Caribbean Football Association, state records of the Federal Court. Co-conspirator # 4 was used by the Group of traffic at the time, but that same year he became the general secretary of CONCACAF. The director general of trade of the United States, Aaron Davidson, is also responsible for the US survey FIFA.

Near the end of these negotiations, co-conspirator # 4 are met defendant accused Takkas, identified as a close associate of Webb. The meeting was held in Hungary. "Takkas told co-conspirator No. 4 Webb wanted a bribe of $ 3 million in exchange for the contract [Football Union] must be assigned to US traffic," court records state.

It is also alleged that bribery was divided between the two companies, traffic from the US and other identified as "Company C Sports Marketing" so that everyone would have to pay $ 1.5 million in Webb. It is also alleged that the payment traffic was sent to the United States Takkas by a Miami bank HSBC in Buffalo, New York, and finally transferred to a HSBC bank in Hong Kong.

The indictment alleges that two transfers totaling $ 1 million were sent from Hong Kong to a correspondent account in New York to the credit of an account in the name of Kosson Ventures - a company controlled by Takkas - Fidelity Bank in the Islands Cayman. Records show that the US $ 500,000 remaining due by TRAFFIC USA They were paid into another account controlled by Takkas at Fidelity Bank in the Cayman Islands.

"Takkas then transferred the funds in an account in the name of a pool builder in the United Community Bank in Blairsville, Georgia," the criminal complaint bed "[It was] the benefit of the accused Jeffrey Webb, he would have a pool built at his home in Loganville, Georgia. "

Federal prosecutors say the Takkas participation in the transfer of funds was "more intermediate 'in nature and was" designed to hide the fact that Jeffrey Webb was the recipient of the payment. "

It was unclear whether the indictment Webb never received the other half of the money from the alleged corruption of "Sports Marketing Company C."

Webb last all charges against month pleaded not guilty in federal court.
