Guidelines on Professional Fees
ICPAU has issued Guidelines on Professional Fees. The Guidelines establish a basis for practitioners to set a reasonable level of remuneration for the professional services that they provide. ICPAU believes that a reasonable level of remuneration will encourage the practitioners to maintain and up-grade the quality of services that they render.
