PCAOB requests comments on alternative for disclosing engagement partner and other audit participants

Jul 01, 2015

The PCAOB has issued a supplemental request for comment that seeks feedback on its “2013 reproposal to require auditors to disclose in the auditor’s report the name of the engagement partner and information about certain other participants in the audit.” Specifically, the PCAOB is seeking feedback on a proposal under which auditors would disclose such information in a new form, known as Form AP, as an alternative to providing such disclosures in the auditor's report. However, auditors would be permitted to “voluntarily provide the same disclosures in the auditor’s report.”

For more in­for­ma­tion, see Deloitte's related journal entry as well as the supplemental request for commentpress release and fact sheet on the PCAOB’s Web site, as well as our previous news item on the pro­posed amend­ments.
