    Ep. 2 - ARSC April 28, 2009 Exposure Draft - Review of Independence Issues (Part 2)

    On April 28, 2009, the AICPA’s Accounting and Review Services Committee released an exposure draft that would revise the standards for compilation and review engagements. The changes, designed to address concerns of small businesses, users of small-business financial statements and CPAs who serve smaller entities, would allow an accountant to issue a review report on financial statements when also performing nonattest services that were designed to improve the reliability of the client's financial information. In addition, the proposed standard would harmonize review standards with the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board’s review standard ISRE No. 2400 as well as recodify AR section 100, Compilation and Review of Financial Statements, into separate chapters for compilation and review engagements. In this podcast, the staff liaison to the ARSC and the Chair of the ARSC Reliability Task Force continue their discussion of the proposed SSARSs.
