ICB public sector accounting courses introduce students to the world of the public sector. Public sector accounting keeps the government running smoothly. These people review financial documentation for the government and its taxpayers. The work they do ranges from the auditing of tax accounts to investigating various government agencies’ financial accounts for signs of fraudulent activity.
Public sector accountants are monitored by The International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board, known also by the acronym of IPSASB. IPSASB is responsible for developing the standards in accounting for entities in the public sector worldwide.
The ICB offers the following public sector accounting programmes for those interested in working in the governmental field:
- ICB National Certificate: Public Sector Accounting
- ICB Diploma: Public Sector Accounting
- ICB National Diploma: Public Sector Accounting
Remember that it is important to specialise because the objectives for public sector differ significantly from the accounting practice has been developed for in the private sector.
