Section 70 of SSARS No. 21 provided flexibility for firms offering financial statement preparation services, but for firms also offering traditional attestation services it has created some confusion. Join Bob Durak, CPA, Director of A&A Technical Services and the CPEA with AICPA, and Sharon Berman, CPA, principal at Rehmann, as they help identify where miscommunication is happening between the quality control and client accounting service department leader. They will clarify other non-attest services and how such engagements affect a practitioner’s independence, inasmuch as rules related to independence and non-attest services can create challenges between the two groups. This session will provide tools for effective communication.
