The global spread of novel coronavirus, has brought upon us an unprecedented crisis. Since first reported in December 2019, it has made medical emergencies, social isolation and economic recession a new normal at a global scale.

In accordance with the guidelines issued by WHO and strict measures taken by Government of Pakistan to contain the spread of Convid-19 virus, Pakistan Institute of Public Finance Accountants took every possible measure to do its part in protection of all Students, Members & Staff.

A mechanism of Work from Home related to Marketing, Technical, Education & CPD has been implemented. PIPFA teams are connected through Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp and other available communication mediums for discharging their duties in their respective areas. The staff level meetings, discussion with faculty, Board, Standing Committees and Branch Committee meetings and interactions are being made as per requirements. This resource page is intended to provide hands on updates and advisory to keep all stake holders updated of actions taken by PIPFA.

CPD Activities

The CPD activities were interrupted for a short period during which PIPFA team planned and reorganized its delivery mechanism and resources.

The Four (4) regional Branch Committees which are primarily responsible for the CPD activities were further extended by adding a National CPD Focused Group constituting Two Members (One Convener and the CPD In-charge) of each Branch Committee headed by One Board Member responsible for CPD. This National CPD group started a nation-wide coordination for conducting the Centralized Free of Cost Webinars.

In these times of lockdown due to the Covid-19, face-to-face educational seminars and activities are being moved online, using remote working sites and tools. PIPFA has organized several Free of Cost Webinars sessions for their members and students with the aim to keep them aware with current developments in the accountancy profession, Tax and IT Tools and their personal grooming.
