Course Description

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. These financial statements can be used by those external to the organization. SSARS 21 also does away with management use only financial statements.

This webinar will help you understand what you need to know about the new preparation service under SSARS 21.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify general principles applicable to all services performed under SSARS 21

  • Identify specific principles applicable to the new preparation service (Section 70).

  • Determine how this standard and technological advancements have resulted in opportunities in marketplace for CPAs.
