As a recognised profession, accountants must be part of a self-governing organisation which regulates the conduct of its members. In Australia there are three professional bodies that accountants can take up membership with. The CAANZ, CPA Australia or the IPA.
Brock Haslam is proud to be a member of the IPA, or Institute of Public Accountants. There’s a lot of reasons why this is true, but chief among them is the IPA’s focus on small business. In fact, the IPA states their own mission is “to improve the quality of life for small business” and they have adopted the tag line “making small business count.”
As small business accountants, we strive to give our clients every opportunity and advantage. Small business can be a tough road and having an accountant by your side who understands the landscape and immerses themselves in this specialty can make all the difference.
Late in 2017 the IPA launched their new brand design, along with updating their policies to reinforce this conviction to small business. Speaking at the time, Andrew Conway, CEO of the IPA said “A brand is much more than a logo. It is about what we say and how we say it; the language we use and the way we engage with our members, colleagues and external stakeholders.
“It is also about having the conviction of not only what we do but why we do it and for the IPA Group that is to improve the quality of life of small business; this is something our members have a strong affinity with.”
So if you’re in business, get an IPA member by your side. Call us for a complimentary appointment to discuss how we can help your business thrive and grow.
