2013 AICPA National Conference on Current SEC and PCAOB Developments

The annual AICPA National Conference on Current SEC and PCAOB Developments was held in Washington, DC from December 9 – 11, 2013.  Among the various speakers included representatives from the SEC, FASB, PCAOB, IASB and AICPA.  Although a number of topics involving financial reporting and auditing were covered through the various presentations, principal themes included:

  • Continued importance of transparency and integrity of financial reporting
  • Accounting and disclosure simplification aimed at providing more comprehensive, informative and meaningful disclosure
  • Global accounting and auditing standards initiatives (FASB/IASB convergence projects)
  • Considerations for transitioning to COSO’s updated internal control framework to comply with internal control reporting requirements
  • Role of auditors considerations, including the PCAOB’s releases on independence and possible changes to the auditor’s report
  • Accounting and auditing quality and the influence on capital formation and economic success
