Ethics Interpretation Proposal: Compliance Audits

June 28, 2022

by WSCPA

A&A TODAY: PRESENTED BY THE WSCPA AND GALASSO LEARNING SOLUTIONS

The AICPA's Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) has proposed some new independence rules related to compliance audits. The AICPA is aware that much of the new COVID-19 related funding is causing many entities who have not been subject to audit requirements or single audit requirements historically to now be subject to them. The proposal adds two definitions and revises the definition of financial statement attest client to help identify which independence rules apply to these engagements. Comments are due September 1, 2022.

Do you agree with the scoping of the proposed interpretation?
