Read about the different committees and taskforces and their activities:
Professional development subcommittee
Regular continuing professional development (CPD) events are organised by this subcommittee to cope with the growing needs of members in professional development.
Apart from advising on topics and subject matter for technical seminars and workshops; it also assesses other training needs of members, including language, IT, management and other business skills so as to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skill sets for their day-to-day work.
SMEs form the backbone of Hong Kong's economy.
The subcommittee was established to look into ways in which accounting professionals can provide support to SMEs.
It also establishes networking with other SME organisations and efforts will be made to raise members' and the public's awareness of the needs of SMEs.
Student affairs subcommittee
The student affairs subcommittee was established with an aim to strengthen ACCA's profile at academic institutions and students’ societies in Hong Kong and Macau.
It gives advice on student services, development and training. The subcommittee engages with ACCA students to promote networking through a wide range of representations, social activities and initiatives.
Through the ACCA Mentorship Programme, fellow members and subcommittee members nurture accountants, contribute to the accounting and finance industry, and provide guidance to ACCA students and young members.
The tax subcommittee was set up to make submissions to the government on tax issues particularly in relation to the Government's Annual Budget and to take various initiatives in relation to tax.
Since December 1997, ACCA Hong Kong has submitted its budget proposals to the financial secretary on an annual basis.
A Tax Interest Group (TIG) was formed in 1998 to enable interested members to come together periodically to share tax-related experience, discuss taxation problems they face and bring to others' attention issues of significance. To facilitate effective discussion, TIG members are split into sub-groups which meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.
Since May 1999, in response to an initiative taken by the Inland Revenue Department, ACCA Hong Kong has been offering free tax advisory services to the public, to assist them in the completion of individual income tax returns. Members are invited to volunteer their service through service hotlines and counters in May each year.
Annual dinner and charity taskforce
The taskforce is responsible for promoting a sense of belonging and professional networking among members through the annual dinner, one of our annual signature events.
In addition, the taskforce aims to raise ACCA's profile and visibility in Hong Kong and promote social responsibility via donations and sponsorships from the ACCA Charitable Foundation.
The taskforce also oversees the annual Community Day to help raise funds for the less privileged in the community.
Members' journal and communications taskforce
The taskforce is responsible for enhancing our communications with members through publication and various channels.
The task force formed the editorial board of ACCA's members' journal - AB CN, which is a publication for members of Hong Kong and mainland China and is published 10 times each year.
