Accountants in the country have been urged not to forget their roles, which include advisory.

Speaking at Imperial Resort Beach Hotel at the just concluded seminar for accountants organised by the Institute of Certified Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU), the Auditor General, John Muwanga emphasised the need for accountants to play their advisory role in organizations.

He noted that many organizations are facing challenges partly because accountants did not play their key role of advising management and the board on what is right for the institutions’ health. The same function, marking ICPAU’s 25 years of existence saw the institute reward the best performers since it was founded.
