All too familiar film screening – the latest ICAEW film

Date: 14 June 2022 08:00 -09:30

Type: Audit Assurance and Financial Reporting, Business and Industry, Course

Organiser: ICAEW, NorSCA

Facilitated discussion following the screening of ICAEW’s All Too Familiar film. This event is for UK-based ICAEW members only.

All Too Familiar is a high-quality training film created by ICAEW in collaboration with HMRC which explores the degree of trust still placed in personal and professional relationships and whether enough scepticism is being used in the fight against economic crime.

Event Information

As with the previous ICAEW films, False Assurance (2015) and Without Question (2017), the latest release, All Too Familiar, challenges mindsets and provokes discussion. This time on the need for greater professional scepticism to help reduce the risk of economic crime, and in particular, money laundering.

As well as professional scepticism, All Too Familiar draws out many themes for discussion, such as:

  • Can familiarity cloud a firm’s judgement,
  • When is the right time to disengage from a client, and
  • What are a firm’s professional responsibilities when engaging with law enforcement?

The film also examines the appropriate levels of Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and risk assessments for client relationships.

Northern Society Vice President Richard Slack will facilitate a Chatham House Rules discussion. Breakfast items will be served prior to the films screening. There is no charge to attend. This event is for UK-based ICAEW members only.
