SOCPA Organizes the "SOCPA Professional Community Forum"
The Saudi Organization for Charted and Professional Accountants (SOCAP) has organized the SOCPA Professional Community Forum today in Riyadh. The forum aims to enhance communication, exchange experiences, and transfer knowledge between those with experience in accounting firms and professionally qualified accountants interested in practicing the profession of accounting and auditing and providing Zakat and tax consultations.
The forum included a workshop entitled "Opportunities for Emerging Firms ", during which the participants discussed a number of topics, the most important of which are: professional licenses, planning to establish a professional firm, how to attract clients and the mechanism for determining professional fees for services.
The workshop also discussed the professional services provided by Chartered Professional Accountants (external audit, internal audit, Zakat and tax, cases, consultations, and Book-keeping) and how to benefit from government platforms that require professional services.
SOCPA stressed its keenness to communicate with those working in the sector through such forums. The forum is an opportunity to listen to them and discuss what is new in the accounting world to encourage and support the practice of the profession, which ultimately contributes to providing high-quality services that enhance confidence in the national economy.
