Code of Conduct

Last Updated: 30th November, 2021

XAP Pte Limited and it’s subsidiaries (“XAP”) are a Singapore based group that promotes a sense of community. Our clients and team members are located from all over the world.

Conversations and shared insights are being exchanged every day between XAP stakeholders. To ensure these discussions help our community be more productive and successful, XAP has put in place this Code of Conduct (or Community Guidelines) outlining the types of discussions and content that are acceptable and what may be deemed inappropriate and stopped by XAP management.

These community guidelines are intended to provide our stakeholders with guidance and complement the terms found in the User Agreement governing your use of, and participation in XAP’s online services.

XAP is a globally connected association that does not fall within the definition of “network” under the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) Code of Ethics, section 290 and the European Union Statutory (revised 8th Company Law) Directive. Each member is legally independent and is expected to abide by the standards of service expected by their recognised professional body. (

Code of Professional Conduct

  1. Be Real. Unlike some other online services, our members need to be real people, who provide their real names and accurate information about themselves. It is not okay to provide misleading information about yourself, your qualifications or your work experience, affiliations or achievements on XAPs platforms.
  2. Be Professional. We ask our members to behave professionally by not being dishonest or inappropriate. We acknowledge the value of discussions around professional activities, but we do not want you to use XAP to shock or intimidate others. It is not okay to share graphic images to shock others, and it is not okay to share obscene images or pornography on XAP’s site.
  3. Be Nice. XAP shouldn’t be used to harm others. Terrorists and those who engage in violent crimes are not welcome at XAP. It is not okay to use XAP’s services to harass, abuse, or send other unwelcomed communications to people (e.g., junk mail, spam, chain letters, phishing schemes). Do not use XAP’s services to promote or threaten violence or property damage, or for hate speech acts like attacking people because of their race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, political or religious affiliations, or medical or physical condition. Also, don’t use XAP’s services to intentionally infect others with viruses or other software that can destroy or interrupt their data or computer devices. It is not okay to interfere or disrupt XAP’s service.
  4. Respect Other’s Rights and Follow the Law. We do not want XAP to be used for illegal activities or to violate the rights of others. Don’t use XAP’s services to commit fraud. Before sharing or using someone else’s copyrighted works, trademarks, private information, or trade secrets, please make sure you have the legal right to do so.
  5. Respect XAP’s Rights. Please don’t violate the rights of XAP and it’s community. You can find more information about what this means in our User Agreement, but put simply, please don’t use XAP’s services to wrongfully take data or information. It is not okay to suggest that you are affiliated with or endorsed by XAP when you are not, and it is not okay to violate XAP’s intellectual property rights.
