The following scenarios might constitute a violation of the AICPA’s Code of Professional Conduct.

  1. Bill Murray, CPA, performs various management services for The Johnson Corporation including bookkeeping and preparing tax returns, but does not perform the audit function. One management service involved a needs assessment on computers and the identification of equipment to meet those needs. Murray recommended a product sold by a computer store, which has agreed to pay Murray a 12% commission if the Johnson Company purchases it.
  2. Emma Stone, CPA, was overbooked for the next few months. When a prospective client asked if Stone would conduct the next year’s audit, she declined but referred them to Brad Paisley, CPA. Brad paid Stone $3,000 for the referral.
  3. Manny Machado, CPA, signed on to perform an inventory control study for a new client, ABC Company. Once the study is complete, he recommends a new inventory control system.
