2020 AICPA Meeting: SEC and PCAOB Developments

Published on: Dec 18, 2020

Each year, key stakeholders gather in Washington, D.C., for the AICPA Conference on Current SEC and PCAOB Developments to discuss issues and trends affecting accounting, financial reporting, auditing, and other related matters. Although the event was fully virtual this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was no less informative.

While the pandemic’s effects were a theme at this year’s conference, much of the conversation stayed grounded in topics that are typically top-of-mind to stakeholders: (1) implementation and application of complex accounting standards; (2) the potential impact of reference rate reform; (3) SEC reporting matters and rulemaking; (4) audit-related topics, including audit quality, auditor independence, and critical audit matters (CAMs); and (5) environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices and disclosures.
