Jeff Sailor’s Step by Step Series was created to tackle various A&A topics using a practical approach, rather than simply going through the standards as they were written. This course will cover the new requirements under SSAE 19 for Agreed-Upon Procedures engagements. AUPEs are a great tool for meeting your client’s needs without traditional reporting. They provide almost endless options for services with very little exposure. This is due to the fact that an AUPE has no conclusion or opinion. Instead, the users are left to form their own opinions as the practitioner simply reports the procedures performed and the findings. Jeff will walk you step by step through the entire process. In addition to the material, Jeff will include his unique perspective and humor, including his signature video parodies, which are designed to keep you awake and reinforce the material.
