Attorney Audit Inquiry Letters

Description

Under ASC 450-20-20, SAS 12 and FAS 5, auditors must inquire into potential loss situations, and issue letters to a client’s attorney, requesting disclosures. This session addresses the controversial disclosures regarding attorney-client confidentiality and explores the differences. A goal towards the formation of adequate disclosures that do not breach attorney-client privilege will also be discussed. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
