AMMAN - Under the patronage of HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, Chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global (TAG.Global) and Mr. Hussam Abu Ali, Director General of the Income and Sales Tax Department, a special ceremony honoring the 116 graduates of the qualification courses of the Jordan Certified Public Accountant (JCPA) from the cadres of the Income and Sales Tax Department was held at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Knowledge Forum (TAG-KF).  

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh expressed his pride in the continuous cooperation with the Tax Department which positively affects national economy, affirming the importance of taxes in building the economies and enhancing the prosperity of nations.

Moreover, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh highlighted the role of accounting in future planning and most importantly in economic decision making at personal and institutional levels.

“If countries lose the compass in calculating income, they will inevitably face economic problems, so attention must be paid to developing the accounting profession,” he noted.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh praised the Tax Department efforts that aim at achieving development, calling for additional activities and media campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of taxes.  
For his part, Abu Ali highly commended the role TAG.Global plays at national, regional and international levels.

HE also expressed gratitude to the Arab Society of Certified Accountants (ASCA) Jordan for their support and efforts in providing the nation with qualified and specialized professional accountants which made Jordan the first Arab country that applies the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS).

By holding such specialized courses, the Department aims at qualifying tax auditors to move from the concept of estimation to the concept of auditing which requires improving the efficiency of auditors enabling them to implement International Accounting Standards (IAS), according to the Director General.

It is worth mentioning that the Sales and Income Tax Department endeavors to create positive change by building capacities, developing skills, maximizing human capabilities and potential as well as developing the implementation of IPSAS. 
ASCA Jordan always seeks to develop accounting and management sciences beside the relevant principles that apply to all or some of the professional services. ASCA also aims at developing the level of competence, practice, and behaviors to match the highest professional levels by its interest in accounting publications along with following the most recent trends in accounting and auditing professions.
