Tēnā koutou katoa

Huge Congratulations to all the Winners and our fellow Chartered Accountants who were to the fore at the 2020 New Zealand CFO Awards, including taking out the CFO of the Year Award, the "pre-eminent recognition of financial professionals in New Zealand".

Have you seen our member's in the media lately? So good to see such inspiring stories being shared across Aotearoa as #DifferenceMakers, we've included some of these inspiring stories below.

Do you have an opinion or valuable insights on the impact of new accounting standards including leases, revenue and financial instruments and changes in the pipeline? Have your say in our short survey here.

The Ministry for the Environment has announced plans to make climate-related financial disclosures mandatory for some organisations, following on from last year's consultation.Find more information below. If you wish to discuss further, please feel free to reach out to our Business Reform team at businessreform@charteredaccountantsanz.com.

Don't forget that on Thursday 24 September 2020 it is officially Auditor Proud Day! This year #AuditorProud Day gives a nod to #AuditInAction.

Lastly, what have you and your teams been doing for Te Wiki o Te Reo – Māori Language Week? Te Wiki o Te Reo is about celebrating and promoting the Māori Language, a taonga for all New Zealanders. We have plenty of resources available for you, check out the link below.

At CA ANZ we believe it's important to give te reo a go, even if you don't know much. Trying is better than not doing anything. Simple little commitments from us all can do so much for Te Reo Māori, like using kia ora (hello) and ka kite (see you).

Kia kaha e hoa mā! Let's go team!
