SSARS 21 went into effect December 31, 2015, and will have the most significant impact on compilation and review engagements since the introduction of these services with the issuance of SSARS 1. (Yes, even more of an impact than SSARS 19!)
If you perform compilation or review engagements, this course is an absolute must. Kurt will explain every aspect of the changes and provide sample reports, checklists, engagement letters, quality control documentation, and everything else you need to effectively implement SSARS 21.
Kurt served on the committee that issues SSARS and has been in close contact with the AICPA throughout the development of this standard in order to ensure that you will receive the most accurate information available. This course will also explore whether or not the new preparation standard that becomes effective with SSARS 21 is appropriate for your firm.
