AASB Graduate intern program - Previous interns

Parveen Dhaliwal (2003)

Parveen Dhaliwal

In 2002, Parveen graduated in the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours), majoring in Accounting and Finance at The University of Melbourne. Prior to taking up the Graduate Internship position in February 2003, her background included:

  • Attachment at Messrs Rashid and Lee, Malaysia (a legal firm) (1997 to 98)
  • Trainee at Yap Pow Kong & Co, Malaysia (an accounting firm) (1999) and
  • Trainee at Douglas Loh & Associates, Malaysia (an audit firm) (2001)

Parveen’s thesis during her Honours year investigated the relationship between audit litigation and auditee characteristics. In particular, her thesis examined whether, in Australia, there is similar evidence to that in the US supporting the notion that auditees with particular characteristics are more likely to be associated with subsequent audit litigation against first-tier auditors.

At the AASB, Parveen worked on a variety of projects, namely the GAAP/GFS harmonisation project (which includes an examination of the accounting treatment under Government Finance Statistics (GFS) and under the IASB’s Reporting Performance project), Service Concessions (which includes accounting for service concession arrangements between governments and private entities), and Intangibles (which includes reviewing the definitions and accounting treatments of Research and Development costs).
