Presentation of Yemen Association for Certified Public Accountants (YACPA) to IFAC/JACPA/WB Workshop Addressing IFAC Statements of Membership Obligations (SMOs) #7 – IFRS Adoption and Implementation

  1. 1. Presentation of Yemen Association for Certified Public Accountants (YACPA) to IFAC/JACPA/WB Workshop Addressing IFAC Statements of Membership Obligations (SMOs) #7 – IFRS Adoption and Implementation Dead Sea, Jordan January 21, 2016. By Ahmed Qaid Ashaybani Chairman/President of YACPA Republic of Yemen
  2. 2. OVERVIEW OF LEGAL AND REGULATORY FOUNDATION IN YEMEN • Yemeni Association of Certified Public Accountants (YACPA) was established under the Law No. 31 (1992) relating to accounting and auditing profession in Yemen and superseded by Law No. 26 (1999). • Under the law, the membership of YACPA covers all certified public accountants – as such membership in YACPA is compulsory. • YACPA members are classified as practicing and non-practicing members.

  4. 4. IFRS IN YEMEN • Law No. 26 (1999) as a regulating tool of the accounting and auditing profession in Yemen, empowers a specific body, entitled the ‘Higher Council of Accounting and Auditing (HCAA) to set accounting and auditing standards. • However, to date, this entity has not been established. As such, there is a lack of a legal standard setter to legislate the application of IFRS. • How has YACPA been operating to address the lack of the HCAA and the lack of existence of a legally empowered standard setter? • YACPA has been proactive in directing members (under its authority all CPAs) to use international standards (IFRS, IESBA Code of Ethics and ISA) and as such, has been acting as an ‘interim standard setter.’
  5. 5. YACPA: Proactivity in IFRS Adoption and Implementation • To ensure implementation of IFRS, YACPA works with universities to include international standards in their curriculum and ensures their engagement in Education Committee. • YACPA also plays an effective role through the development and delivery of the CPA exam and sees this as a vehicle for IFRS implementation amongst newer members. • YACPA works to ensure that not only new members of the profession, but current members of the profession are aware of the standards and of the need for their application through comprehensive IFRS CPD Offerings (IFRS and IFRS for SMEs) for all members. • Through YACPA Standards Committee for accounting, auditing and ethics our PAO examines, researches and promotes IFRS, ISA, Ethics, etc. amongst members, regulators, ministries, NGOs and the public.
  6. 6. YACPA: Proactivity in IFRS Adoption and Implementation • YACPA maintains relationships and engagement with regulators to ensure compliance with IFRS and other standards and has ensured their inclusion in IFRS-related adoption and implementation efforts. • YACPA has sought and achieved government support for the adoption of IFRS (Presidential and Ministerial Decrees). • YACPA has convened a diverse group of national stakeholders and in its role in regulating the profession has led negotiations and discussions with IASB in the adoption and implementation of IFRS. • Yemen Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIT) is responsible for field supervision (or audit quality assurance) under law. However as this is not implemented in practice, YACPA has created practice review system to ensure application of standards in practice.
  7. 7. WHAT HAS MADE YACPA SUCCESSFUL IN IFRS ADOPTION / IMPLEMENTATION? Being PROACTIVE and Not Waiting for Things to Change! Dialogue & Relationship with World Bank IFAC Application & Deferment Maintaining Motivation and Morale Strong Engagement with IASB Working with Gov’t & Gov’t Inclusion Focus on IFRS Education & Training
  8. 8. YACPA DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES AND ACHIEVEMENTS • Continue push for comprehensive national legal adoption of international standards (IFRS and ISA) as well as continue YACPA implementation of IASB agreement to adopt and provide Arabic and English language versions of the standards to membership and beyond; • Additional strengthening of YACPA’s internal technical and financial capacity – in part through development of YACPA Training Institute which serves to both provide high quality training and CPD offerings as well as a solid revenue stream for YACPA; • Inclusion of a requirement for mandatory achievement and system for monitoring of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) within education criteria; and • Development of a system of audit quality assurance (QA) – expanding upon YACPA’s current system of peer review.
