New issue of ‘In Our Opinion’ newsletter is out

leave a comment »

The AICPA occasionally publishes a newsletter addressing attestation issues.  Recently there have been one or two issues per year.  Previously it was quarterly.

There is an October 2011 newsletter available here.

Purpose of the newsletter from the AICPA website:

In Our Opinion is designed to keep accounting professionals performing audit and attest, and compilation and review services up-to-date on emerging developments in these areas. In this newsletter you will find the latest information on recently issued Statements on Auditing Standards (SASs), Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAEs), Statements on Quality Control Standards (SQCSs), and Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services (SSARSs) as well as projects to establish new standards or additional guidance in these areas.

Good thing to browse.  Great to drill down into things you haven’t heard of before.  Hard to keep track of when there is a new release though.

Listing of all the available AICPA newsletters is here.
