      BackgrounD information

      The Financial Controller in a family business is normally viewed as one of the top key players in the running of the family business. The influence that financial controllers, especially if they are not linked to any of the family owners, can be significant as they can provide an independent and impartial view of what is happening in the family business and how it can best improve and adapt to the challenges such family business would be facing.
      Financial Controllers need to however make sure that they understand the forces at play in a family business, whilst making sure that they use their influence to have the family business shape up and run more professionally. Therefore, financial controllers in a family business have many times a role which is much larger than simply an accounting and reporting function.
      This course is intended to help financial controllers understand the full length and breadth of their role within a family business and how they can best help family businesses improve and become more professional in their approach.

      Topics on the agenda

      SESSION 1 
      1. What makes a Family Business distinct from other types of Business?
      2. Why is the role of a Financial Controller so pivotal in a Family Business?
      3. Is the ownership structure of the family business inline with the business reality and future needs?
      4. Does the family business have the appropriate governance structures that a financial controller can use to warn about future risks or address present issues?


      Topics on the agenda 

      SESSION 2 
      1. How the financial controller can help a family business adopt a strategic mindset
      2. How the financial controller can help a family business become data driven organisations
      3. The importance of Succession Planning which is a journey and not an event
      4. The role of the financial controller in setting up various important policies (family employment, dividend, conflict management and wealth management).


      Why is the session of relevance to our members?

      Many times family businesses require input from their financial controllers that goes beyond the simple accounting and reporting functions. They would require the financial controller to guide the family business to professionalise its approach at running the business and in becoming better equipped at growing in a sustainable way.

      Target Audience

      Any accountant who works for a family business or aspires to work in a family business.

        BackgrounD information

        The transposition of Directive 1023/2019 (the Directive on restructuring and insolvency) into Maltese law will result in a material and substantial reform, with three primary outcomes, these being: (a) the introduction of preventive restructuring procedures into Maltese law in a manner that aligns with the safeguards and protections required by the Directive; (b) the modification of Malta’s existing bankruptcy legislation so as to apply a three-year duration for the effective discharge of commercial debt; and (c) the introduction of specific regulation intended to formalize the role, functions and obligations of insolvency practitioners.
        These objectives will be achieved, respectively, through the enactment of the Pre-Insolvency Act, the amendments to Part III of the Commercial Code on bankruptcy, and the Insolvency Practitioners Act.
        Topics on the agenda

        TOPICS ON THE AGENDA

        SESSION 1 
        • Early warning and eligibility for preventive restructuring procedure
        • The available typologies of preventive restructuring and the specific relevance of each
        • The stay of individual enforcement actions and other protections for debtors under preventive restructuring procedure
        • The formulation and confirmation of a restructuring plan
        SESSION 2
        • The declaration of bankruptcy and other considerations around entry into bankruptcy proceedings
        • The notion of dischargeable debts and the treatment of commercial and personal debts
        • The role and functions of the bankruptcy trustee
        • The implications of discharge and rehabilitation as the outcome of successful bankruptcy proceedings.


        Why is the session of relevance to our members?

        The impact of the transposition of Directive 1023/2019 into Maltese law is expected to be very broad, and to have a material impact on the manner in which business conduct their operations. New obligations will be introduced, which the vast majority of businesses will need to be sensitive towards, and the introduction of new legislative mechanisms may result in a need to revaluate various standards business practices.

        Target Audience

        Accountants and prospective accountants, lawyers, entrepreneurs, business owners and self-employed persons

          BACKGROUND INFORMATION
          A mindset is a series of self-perceptions or beliefs people hold about themselves. These determine behaviour, outlook and mental attitude.
          People with a fixed mindset believe that abilities, intelligence and talents are all traits we are born with. They often obstruct their development through their belief in innate talent and their fear of failure. They see failure as a disaster. People with a growth mindset believe their talents and abilities are developed through effort, teaching and practice. They believe anyone can improve and be smarter if they work at it. They are open to new ideas and learning and see failures as opportunities. It is possible to develop a growth mindset, and in the accounting profession today, it is not just a good idea, but vital to long-term success.

          Topics on the agenda

          Topics that will be covered include fixed mindset, growth mindset, attributes of a growth mindset workplace, developing “can-do” thinking, personal growth and leading with a growth mindset.

          Target Audience

          Members and non-members of the Malta Institute of Accountants – accountants, managing partners of firms, directors, managers, and anyone interested in the areas being covered by this Session.
          Through this workshop participants will learn the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset and understand the repercussions of both. They will be enabled to challenge their own mindset as well as the myths about mindsets. The workshop will provide opportunities for participants to move toward the growth end of the mindset spectrum.

            Speaker's Profile

            Dr Natalie Kenely is a Senior Lecturer and former Head of Department within the Faculty for Social Wellbeing at the University of Malta. She participated as panel member on the discussion Expanding Expectations: Intelligence, Creativity, Digital Technologies & Emotional Intelligence during the MIA Biennial Conference in 2016, and as speaker at the MIA SME forum in February 2019. She has delivered a number of CPE workshops to the MIA.

            BACKGROUND INFORMATION

            Traditionally, commercial properties have been valued using the traditional capitalization method. This is an inflation implicit valuation method where the rental value is divided by an all-risks yield (ARY) in order to obtain the Market Value.
            However, the world is experiencing a shift towards the discounted cash flow method as it is an inflation explicit method which is more versatile which makes it able to cater for changing complexities in lease structures. This shift has been slow in Malta as there remains a reluctance within the real estate sector to adopting valuation approaches in which these factors are made more explicit for a variety of reasons.
            The webinar will discuss the key concepts and principles of these two methods, being the two main methods in the income approach. It will comment upon the on-going debate about the preferred use of implicit models of valuation vs their explicit counterparts by giving an overview of the processes and pros and cons of both methods and will give guidance about when to use both methods.

            Specific topics to be covered during the session

            BACKGROUND INFORMATION

            In today's economy, we take resources from the Earth, manufacture items from them, and finally discard them as garbage - the process is linear. In a circular economy, on the other hand, we prevent waste from being created in the first place.
            Accounting and financing are critical to the success of circular businesses and to achieving sustainable development. Creating circular businesses is a key path to accelerate the circular transformation and achieve major climate targets like net-zero emissions. However, there are some key challenges in implementing circular accounting approaches to capture the value of circular business models and help circular businesses be successful. These challenges will be discussed in detail in this session. 

            Specific topics to be covered during the session

            • What is circular economy
            • What are the challenges of supporting the Circular Economy in financial accounting
            • What are the benefits of incorporating Circular Economy in financial reporting
            • What is carbon neutrality
            • How can businesses contribute towards carbon neutrality.

            WHY IS THE SESSION OF RELEVANCE TO OUR MEMBERS?

            Accountants are usually the first port of call for most business owners when they need to evaluate the feasibility of a project/product or to get general business advice. However, accountants might not have the time to focus on some areas such as environmental issues, meaning that they might not be in a position to properly guide their clients. This session will give a good general background on the topic while still entering into the details of the subject.  

            Target Audience

            • Accountants and prospective accountants who work mainly on the provision of financial reporting beyond financial statements.
            • Accountants and prospective accountants in general.
            • Business advisors.
            • Business owners and self-employed persons who would like to transform their business into a more sustainable one.

              BackgrounD information

              Business Plans need to be a coherent document. The analysis of the business at its present status, its strategic direction and any change management or transformation need to follow a logical flow.
              This course will go through the building blocks of a Business Plan and how these building blocks needs to be linked to build a coherent analysis and strategic direction. The financials in the Business Plan also need to fit in within the other building blocks.
              The aim of the course is to give you the tools to first build a coherent Business plan and then implement that Business Plan, rather than allow it be a document to be shelved.

              Topics on the agenda

              SESSION 1 
              1. What is a Business Plan?
              2. Why do a Business Plan
              3. A very detailed overview of a Business Plan


              Topics on the agenda 

              SESSION 2 
              1. Dealing with the implementation of the Business Plan - Business Transformation
              2. Managing Change
              3. To implement a Business Plan - need Leadership, Teamwork and Communication


              Why is the session of relevance to our members?

              Many times, the inherent main weakness of a Business Plan is that it is not an extensive & coherent document and hence many things shown in the financial forecasts are not tied up with any previous analysis on the business and its strategic direction. These sessions are intended to overcome this weakness and to make sure that Business Plans are extensive, detailed and most of all coherent strategic documents

              Target Audience

              Anyone involved in drawing up Business Plans should be interested in these sessions. This includes Business Owners, Business Managers, Company Directors, Financial Controllers and Outsourced Accountants.
