A communication to members sent on Friday afternoon, and seen by Accountants Daily, shows the association’s country head for Malaysia and director, Priya Dharshini Terumalay, was paid $175,285 in 2016.
Andrew Heng is an external independent director for the Malaysian arm, not an employee of CPA Australia, and his payment is listed as $1,623 in the schedule provided.
Director and executive general manager of education for Shanghai, Robert Thomason, was paid $398,907.
Country head for Greater China and director, Deborah Leung, was paid $386,597. Deputy chief financial officer and director for the Shanghai branch, Nicholas Diss, was paid $320,176.
CPA Australia noted that, with the exception of Andrew Heng, all directors listed above of the foreign subsidiaries are employees who do not receive remuneration in their capacity as directors of the foreign subsidiaries.
Accountants Daily is awaiting further comment on the issue of Andrew Heng’s payment, who is a director in the Malaysian arm.
This announcement comes as the member leading a rebellion against CPA Australia, Brett Stevenson, announced his "fighting fund" has reached $27,505 as of 29 June.
The fund has been established by Mr Stevenson to - amongst several items - prompt ASIC involvement, pursue regulatory and government assistance, and seek mediatorial resolution which will involve legal assistance.
