Course Description

The AICPA Accounting and Review Services Committee's SSARS 21, Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services: Clarification and Recodification, supersedes all previously issued compilation and review standards. The various procedural changes effected by this far-reaching standard, many of which have been misunderstood by practitioners, include revised reports and a new level of service. 

This course provides much needed background and context for the changes included in SSARS 21. The new 'preparation” level of service is described in a way that its applicability becomes clear. Instructor Tom Noce provides a comprehensive explanation of the completely revised compilation reporting requirements as well as the expanded procedural requirements for reviewing financial statements. 

This course is a must for all practitioners providing services in these areas.
