Attestation Update – A&A for CPAs

Technical stuff for CPAs providing attestation services

PCAOB will meet to discuss a concept statement about asking for comments on maybe requiring mandatory firm rotation.

Still quite iffy. PCAOB is thinking about maybe asking for reaction to the idea.  A long way from implementation, but it is the next step on that path.

John Hufnagle has a few more words on the topic at Audit Firm Rotation – The Train Is Starting Its Engine. Gotta’ love the title of his post!

I think it is a bad idea. Ironically, my intentionally one-person firm would benefit tremendously if mandatory firm rotation ever gets to be the norm for the NPO world. A tremendous number of NPOs would be out talking to new auditors. I am positive I would pick up a ton of work. Still a bad idea though.
