RandDTax – Ethical Code
This Code sets out below five fundamental principles, the spirit of which RandDTax Consultants and Consultants’ staff must always comply with, and which requires them to consider whether actions or relationships which they undertake might constitute threats to adherence to those principles. Where any such threat is encountered and is material, advice and guidance must be sought promptly from a Director of RandDTax in order to ensure that safeguards be implemented.
To be straightforward and honest in all professional and business relationships.
Not to allow bias, conflict of interest or undue influence of others to override professional or business judgements.
- PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE AND DUE CARE
To maintain professional knowledge and skill at the level required to ensure that all clients receive competent professional services based on current developments in practice, legislation and techniques, and to act diligently and in accordance with applicable technical and professional standards.
To respect the confidentiality of information acquired as a result of professional and business relationships and, therefore, not disclose any such information to third parties without proper and specific authority (unless there is a legal or professional right or duty to disclose) nor use the information for the personal advantage of the Consultant or any third party.
- PROFESSIONAL BEHAVIOUR
To comply with relevant laws and regulations and avoid any action that discredits RandDTax or the profession in which it operates.
