New York, NY, February 13, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: PCAOB’s New World of Auditor Reporting Explored. This two-hour event is scheduled on February 27, 2014 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm (ET).
Two proposals issued by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) to expand the auditor's report may significantly affect companies and their audit committees. The PCAOB's transparency proposal would require disclosure of the audit engagement partner's name in the audit report and disclosure of other accounting firms and persons who participated in the audit. The reporting model proposal would require auditors to discuss in the audit report critical auditing matters (CAMs) that arose during the audit. CAMs disclosure could include information about the company's financial reporting that the company itself has not made public. Implementing these proposals could have unintended consequences and would present difficult new challenges for both companies and their auditors.
