    You need to cover the following LO (LEARNING OUT COMES) for ISYS unit

    You need to write an essay type of document covering LO 4 and LO 5

    You will need to identify and flag LO met at the end of each paragraph
    You will also need to map this in your mapping document and send it to your assessor to show where in your essay (page number and paragraph number) you have met these LOs

    The following LO has not been covered in your ICAS unit which now needs to be covered for conversion into ISYS unit


    Ethical analysis of the accounting systems (This will be required to be inserted in Appendix )


    Before you start the following documents are required for review and analysis.

    • Read your case study very carefully jotting down any breach or threats to breach of ethical principles. (PPCIO)
    • Read and understand the ISYS Criteria (Both listed below)


    TASK = Prepare a ethical analysis table. (see the handouts/Textbook for an example)

    (This must be inserted in the appendix body of your project)

    • Describe an activity where there may be a possibility of a breach or an actual breach of an ethics principle.
    • How likely is for that breach to happen in the chosen accounting department.
    • Identify potential threats to 5 ethical principles. (ASIFS)
    • What impact will be or can be on the scenario company (reputation, breach of confidentiality, product integrity, etc).
    • What safeguards can be put in place to eliminate or diminish the threat


    Task = Conduct an ethical evaluation of the accounting systems

    Before you start the following documents are required for review and analysis.

    • Ethical Analysis table from above task
    • Read and understand the ISYS Criteria listed below


    Based on all accounting departments, start to write some paragraphs.

    A very brief 1st Paragraph should describe the 5 Ethics principles and as a member of AAT it is a duty to follow ethical code of practice set by AAT. Explain why is it important for the company to follow the ethical principles. What is the purpose of ethical principles?

    From all accounting departments and current accounting practice (Must tie with SWOT) write on at least one or two breaches or likely breaches to ethical principles. (PPCIO)

    1 Describes the ethical breach or a potential ethical breach and explain how it effects your company? Note this task is in TWO parts. LO 4.1, LO 4.2

    2 Then immediately after that in the next paragraph write your recommendations on how to safeguard that principle of ethical principle. What controls will be put in place to address the problem. LO 6.1

    3 In the next paragraph explain or justify your recommendations. How will your recommendations help the company to alleviate or reduce the weakness identified in your above description? LO 6.2

    LO 4.1
    Evaluate the accounting system against ethical principles

    This identified weakness should be on your SWOT analysis.


    LO 4.2
    Identify actual or possible breaches of professional ethics

    LO 6.1 • Make recommendations to improve the accounting system

    Make recommendations for changes to the accounting system, including ethical and sustainability considerations, with a clear rationale and an explanation of any assumptions made

    This should be covered in TWO parts
    1- Recommend how to eliminate or reduce identified weakness (ie - put in dome controls)
    2 - State how will this recommendation eliminate or reduce impact on the organisation.

    LO 6.2 Identify the effects that any recommended changes would have on the users of the system.

    • How likely is for that breach to happen in the chosen accounting department.
    • Identify potential threats to any of 3 sustainability principles.
