PCAOB Hot Buttons for 2019 - Getting Out In Front of the Inevitable
The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) oversees the audits of public companies in order to protect investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, accurate, and independent audit reports. The PCAOB inspections process is in the midst of transformation, after the appointment of an entirely new Board and an extensive strategic planning process in 2018. This presentation will help internal auditors and management to understand the inspections process and prepare for what is going to be expected from your external auditors in the months ahead. This presentation will also cover the new requirement to identify and report on critical audit matters, which will require a joint effort from management, the audit committee, and external audit.
