Course Description

In the past few years, attestation services have grown in popularity as the need for an independent party to assure topics other than financial statements has become required by laws, regulators, or service clients. 

An attestation service or engagement is the process of engaging a CPA to provide assurance or attestation audits over services.  These services can be used to gain assurance over the following subject matters: agreed-upon procedures, prospective financial statements, compliance, Management Discussion and Analysis (MD&A), and service organizations.

As attestation services have grown, the AICPA has had to create more formalized standards and in April 2016, released the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 18, Attestation Standards: Clarification and Recodification. The goal of this project was to make standards clearer and easier to apply within engagements.

Attestation standards often take a back seat to audit and SSARS standards. Many practitioners don’t fully understand them and often don’t realize when they apply. The goal of attestation standards is to provide guidance, set boundaries around a growing service line, define a measure of quality, and outline the objectives that should be reached when performing attestation engagements.

In this CPE Auditing webinar, we will discuss the application of the statements of standards for attestation engagements (SSAEs) and when they apply. 

Following are the major topics covered in this CPE course:

  • SSAEs 18-22
  • The clarified standards
  • Responsibilities in agreed-upon procedures engagements
  • Materiality
  • Assertion-based and direct examination engagements
  • Review engagements

You might be interested in the Certification course on SOX Compliance.
