Course Description

Each year, companies and their outside accountants have to deal with various new auditing, review, and compilation standards. Often, these standard are issued a couple of years in advance of being effective. The earlier that companies and their outside accountants are aware of the standards and their effect, the earlier that companies can ready their financial reporting systems to be ready to respond to an outside accountant’s requests, thus possibly aiding in a more efficient engagement with the outside accountant. This presentation will take an overview of the standards issued so far this year to help companies, and their outside accountants, understand coming changes.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify changes in attest audit standards, and identify circumstances in which they apply.
