SYNOPSIS

On 29 April 2021, we opened the virtual doors to our inaugural ISCA Support Fund Tech Fair! Participants got to “walk” through the 3D virtual lobby and experience the physical fair that we could have hosted, but without the travelling and overcrowding. Through conversations with the tech vendors, demo videos and resources available at the Exhibitors Theatre, participants obtained greater insights on the curated digital solutions funded under the ISCA Support Fund.

What is the ISCA Support Fund?

ISCA has established the ISCA Support Fund to support businesses, to sustain livelihoods of accountancy professionals and to safeguard professional credentials. This support scheme is a unique and holistic set of initiatives aimed to help small and medium-sized practices (SMPs) and accountancy professionals make deeper and more strategic shifts so that the profession can emerge stronger and seize the opportunities arising in the New Normal. The ISCA Support Fund for SMPs goes towards accelerating the digital transformation and upskilling efforts of SMPs, as well as provide working capital to SMPs affected by the pandemic.


What is the ISCA Suppport Fund Tech Fair?

The objective of this ISCA Support Fund Tech Fair is to help interested applicants for the Support Fund understand the features and benefits of the curated digital solutions. These solutions are eligible for 70% funding under the ISCA Support Fund. Participants will be able to view demo videos to learn of the functionalities of each digital solution and interact with vendors at their respective exhibition booths. Through the Tech Fair, participants will be able to see which tools are suitable for their practice and decide on the digital solutions to adopt, and enjoy funding support under the ISCA Support Fund.

SYNOPSIS

The Accountancy Future Leaders Programme is a six-month programme developed by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) in partnership with the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC).

In this age of digitalisation, global interdependence and complexity, professional services firms face diverse opportunities and challenges. The leadership of a public accounting firm is one of the most important drivers to raise the quality of the firm's work and seize opportunities in this competitive and disruptive market.

The Accountancy Future Leaders Programme ("AFL Programme") provides a structured and formalised professional development pathway aimed at developing selected individuals of accounting firms, in particular the Small and Medium Practices (SMPs), in leadership capabilities which is essential for succession planning. It also aims to improve the competitiveness of SMPs, provide tactical and practical assistance to enhance the quality of SMP services and showcase best practices.

The programme aims to gear up future Accountancy sector leaders with leadership capabilities, market insights and business growth strategies. The focus areas of the programme includes:

  • Practice Leadership
  • Business Strategy
  • People Strategy
  • Technology Strategy

AFL Programme is primarily targeted at:

  • professional accountants working in accounting firms, in particular SMPs, specifically high potential leaders identified by the managing partner, or
  • middle to senior level officers with a minimum of 10 years of professional experience.

SYNOPSIS
This course aims to equip participants with the skills to easily create useful RPA scripts to automate the audit processes, without coding or programming knowledge. They will learn how to achieve this through using a RPA software. At the end of the course, participants will be able to immediately use the RPA solutions and adopt the use of RPA in their workplace.With many businesses turning to digital technologies and tools, cyber risks have also increased tremendously. Accounting professionals are one of the key targets for cyber criminals due to the large volume of confidential and sensitive data which they maintain for their clients. These cyber risks are further amplified if accounting professionals and their staff do not have adequate understanding of the risks and management of the risks.

During this webinar, the speakers will share with you how you can manage the cyber and technology risks to prevent unnecessary reputational and financial losses in the long run.


By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand what is RPA and how it can automate processes
  • Develop RPA scripts using case examples
  • Identify audit processes suitable for RPA implementation
  • Develop RPA scripts using learner’s selected process (es)
  • Deploy developed RPA solutions immediately at the workplace.
