SSARS Update

This course addresses recent changes to the Statement on Standards for Accounting and Review Services (SSARS) codified through SSARS 21, SSARS 22, and SSARS 23. SSARS 21 resulted in the most significant revisions to the compilation and review standards in over 35 years and introduced a new lower-level service referred to as a preparation engagement. We present the SSARS 21 changes using a comparative analysis format highlighting the differences between the current standards and those previously mandated by SSARS 19. Further, we introduce the new Pro Forma and Prospective Financial Information standards (SSARS 22 and SSARS 23) emphasizing their application from the perspective of small and medium-sized entities.

Upon completion of this two-hour course, you will identify the:

  • Get a 115-page PDF manual
  • Substantive compilation and review engagement changes mandated by SSARS 21,
    including new engagement letters, completely revised management representation
    letters, and dramatically different accountant’s reports;
  • New requirements for preparation engagements;
  • Differences between review, compilation, and preparation engagements, and the
    level of service best suited for your clients;
  • Significant changes to the Pro Forma and Prospective Financial Information
  • Most common SSARS related peer review findings;
  • Board of Accountancy’s SSARS related regulatory changes; and
  • Updated reporting requirements for financial statements prepared in accordance
    with special purpose financial reporting frameworks.
