The Hong Kong Society of Accountants (HKSA) has defended reports it submitted to the stock exchange on three cases of suspected accounting malpractice.


'They [the exchange] asked general questions, and the society in fact has given them far more specific answers,' HKSA president Kam Pok-man said yesterday.


Sources said on Thursday the exchange believed the reports were 'too simple' and it planned to lodge a formal complaint with the HKSA.


Mr Kam said to his knowledge the exchange had never invited HKSA representatives to a meeting to explain the relevant reports.


'I think things would be better if we could talk to each other,' he said.


Mr Kam said the society would hold a press conference next week to explain the issue.


The HKSA set up a task force to study a number of cases passed from the exchange early this year and reported back on three of them last week.


Exchange senior executive director Lawrence Fok Kwong-man would not comment on the issue yesterday.
