Reanda International is delighted to announce that Mr. José Pedro Farinha, partner of BTOC, strategic cooperation network of Reanda International, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Portuguese Chartered Accountants Association (known as “Ordem dos Contabilistas Certificados”; “OCC”) in Portugal, for a four-year term from 2018 to 2021. Mr. José Pedro Farinha was a member in the elected group “List A” amongst the total 4 group candidates in this prestigious election.

The first election was held on 20 December 2017 across the nation participating by some 12,328 voters from members of the OCC. “List A” received the highest votes of 49.3%. While none of the group candidates has received a majority of the votes cast, a second election for the two group candidates receiving the most votes was held on 8 February 2018 where “List A” had received 52.5% of votes and won the election. As such, all 7 members from “List A” had been elected to the Board of Directors.

Established in 1995, OCC, the mandatory professional accountancy organization for accountants in Portugal, currently has more than 75,000 registered members. OCC members prepare tax and financial statements and are the only members of the profession allowed to sign financial statements along with company representatives. The OCC issues practising certificates, and organizes and maintains the register of accountants and accounting firms. The institute is also tasked with setting quality control standards, monitoring the performance of accountants, organizing professional examinations, and setting and implementing the mandatory continuous professional development program. It is responsible for enforcing ethical standards through maintaining an investigative and disciplinary system, and implementing the initial professional development program.

On this occasion, Reanda International would like to congratulate Mr. José Pedro Farinha on this significant milestone and achievement.

The Inauguration Ceremony for the newly elected board of directors of OCC was held in the António Domingues de Azevedo Auditorium in Lisbon on 5 March 2018, with an audience with more than 600 people, including but not limited to members of the Representative Assembly, the Jurisdictional Council and the Fiscal Council
