95TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ACCOUNTANCY PROFESSION IN THE PHILIPPINES TO BE CELEBRATED IN 2018

 

In 1923, ac­counting was legally recognized as as a profession in the country when the sixth Philippines Legislature approved Act No. 3105 on March 17, 1923. This law created the Board of Accountancy vested with authority to promulgate rules and regulations, to set professional standards for the accounting profession practice and to issue certified public accountant certificates to those who have qualified in accordance with the requirements of the law. The Board then was composed of a chairman and two members. The first Board of Accountancy was composed of Chairman W. W. Larkin, and, Domingo Dikit and Felix Tiongson, as members.
