This course focuses on the aspects of SSARS 21 which are relevant for the new preparation service.
In October 2014 the Accounting and Review Services Committee of the AICPA issued Statement on Standards for Accounting and Review Services 21 (SSARS 21). This new standard becomes effective for periods ending on or after 12.15.15, with early implementation being an option. SSARS 21 creates a new level of service for CPAs with regards to financial statements. CPAs can now prepare financial statements without a need to evaluate independence, and without reporting.
