Ethics in accounting

Accountants, bookkeepers, and accounting professionals are bound by 5 codes of ethics principles. 

"The fundamental principles within the Code – integrity, objectivity, professional competence and due care, confidentiality, and professional behavior – establish the standard of behavior expected of a professional accountant (PA) and it reflects the profession’s recognition of its public interest responsibility." 

Write a reflection paper double spaced (12 font) that ideally should include the following:

* how you would maintain or increase the trust of your client. 

*  A conclusion that provides a summary of your paper.
