Chartered Accountants Ireland offers a free Technical Enquiry Service to all members on accounting and auditing issues. Common queries include the treatment of an unusual item in financial statements, aspects of company law and qualifications in audit reports. Responses to queries are supported by reference to the necessary legislation and standards but in any judgemental cases, they are the personal opinion of the consultant concerned. He or she will suggest options or give examples to help the member but only the member will have all the information necessary to arrive at a suitable conclusion.
Members are encouraged to carrry out their own research before contacting the Technical Enquiry Service and can be facilitated in doing so by using CHARIOT which is available online on this site.
Your enquiry will be treated in strict confidence. If the nature of your enquiry is ethical the advisor will be exempt from the duty to report misconduct, hence details will not be divulged to third parties, including other departments of Chartered Accountants Ireland, unless you request or consent to this.
