Updated as of June 1, 2018, Professional Standards (two-volume set) is a comprehensive source of professional standards and interpretations issued by the AICPA, such as auditing and attestation, accounting and review services pronouncements, along with the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and Bylaws. Standards and related interpretations, to help you apply the standards in specific circumstances, are arranged by subject with amendments noted, superseded portions deleted, and conforming changes reflected. This year's edition includes the following new standards:
* Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 133, Auditor Involvement With Exempt Offering Documents
* Statement on Standards for Accounting and Review Services (SSARS) No. 24, Omnibus Statement on Standards for Accounting and Review Services--2018
* Statement of Position (SOP) 17-1, Performing Agreed-Upon Procedures Related to Rated Exchange Act Asset-Backed Securities Third-Party Due Diligence Services as Defined by SEC Release No. 34-72936
SAS No. 133 addresses the auditor's responsibilities with respect to all exempt offerings of securities undertaken pursuant to federal and state securities laws and similar laws governing franchise offerings. AU-C section 925, Filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Under the Securities Act of 1933, addresses other offerings. Prior to the issuance of SAS No. 133, the AICPA provided best practices specific to issuances of municipal securities in industry-specific auditing guidance appearing in AICPA Audit and Accounting Guides State and Local Governments and Health Care Entities.
Of most significance in SSARS No. 24 is the creation of a new section, AR-C section 100, Special Considerations--International Reporting Issues. This section provides requirements and guidance for an accountant who is engaged to perform a compilation or review when (a) the financial statements have been prepared in accordance with a financial reporting framework generally accepted in another country or (b) the compilation or review is to be performed in accordance with both SSARSs and another set of compilation or review standards.
The AICPA's founding established accountancy as a profession distinguished by rigorous educational requirements, high professional standards, a strict code of professional ethics, a licensing status and a commitment to serving the public interest.
