Webinar(CA): SSARS Practice Issues and Standards Update

Description

SSARS #21 codified and clarifed all previous SSARS standards and was effective for financial statements ending on or after December 15, 2015 (Calendar 2015). It revised existing standards, upgraded service requirements, and introduced a new level of service – the “Preparation Engagement”.
SSARS #21 requires numerous practice issues for the various levels of service, including confirming the services to be provided with the client, attest vs. non-attest services, required procedures to be performed and documentation of them, and reporting requirements for each level of service. SSARS #21 also addresses specific issues overlooked in the original standard.
