Webcast: The Newest Thing in Compilation & Review: Practical Approaches to Performing Efficient and Effective Engagements

Receive an update to some of the key issues involved in performing preparation, compilation, and review engagements in accordance with SSARS, including the areas cited most frequently as creating problems for practitioners.

Review all of the changes to SSARS within the last couple of years as well as changes to the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct (Code) and the Quality Control Standards.

Many practitioners have not incorporated all of the changes that resulted from SSARS #21 and the changes to the code that were directly related.  In particular, changes were made in respect to independence when performing nonattest services for attest clients. Additionally, even though independence is not required for a preparation engagement, many practitioners overlook the implications of performing a preparation engagement on other engagements that may be performed for the same client.
