This feature makes it easier for the KSCPA team to handle guest registrations and helps our members and others in the database because they don't have to call the office to register guests for free events or pay for events that have a fee.
October 9, 2012In June 2012, the AICPA’s Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) issued the exposure draft Proposed Revised and New Interpretations and Proposed Deletion of Ethics Rulings. This exposure draft includes a proposal to amend Interpretation No. 101-3, “Nonattest Services,” under Rule 101, Independence (AICPA, Professional Standards, ET sec. 101 par. .05), to make clear that certain services, including financial statement preparation, would be a nonattest service.
Concurrently, the AICPA’s Accounting and Review Services Committee (ARSC) issued the exposure draft Proposed Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services Association With Unaudited Financial Statements; Compilation of Financial Statements; and Compilation of Financial Statements—Special Considerations that would, among other things, amend when the compilation standard applies and what action a CPA should take when the CPA has been involved in preparing financial statements but has not been engaged to perform a compilation, review, or audit engagement.
This white paper looks at the rationale behind these two proposals, why they make sense, and what practitioners need to consider going forward. Specifically, this paper looks at three key areas:
1. Why is preparation a nonattest service?
2. Why does the compilation standard need to be amended?
3. What standards must be followed if a member prepares financial statements?Source: AICPA
