The Auditing Standards Board has recently changed the standards for quality in accounting firms by replacing the old SQCS 8 with a brand new set of standards: SQMS 1, SQMS 2, SAS 146 and SSARS 26 (issued by the ARSC). These new standards require that all firms with an accounting and auditing practice put into place a system of quality management. This means that even if you only perform a single compilation engagement, you are required to implement this system. The deadline for change is coming soon and this is expected to be a major peer review focus area. In this course, Jeff Sailor will bring his truly unique presentation style to cover the most important topics you need to know to get ready for this new requirement. In addition to covering the standards pronouncements, Jeff will include his signature video parodies, which are designed to keep you awake and reinforce the material.
