An auditor frequently uses sampling in performing audit procedures, giving rise to the date of the financial statements and the date of the auditor’s report that could also include dual dating of the report, restricted to the amendment or.
This installment expands on that theme, providing guidance for when an auditor is requested to reissue an audit report as a predecessor auditor on the financial statements of a former client that are not expected to be restated, but will be presented comparatively with financial statements of a later period audited by a successor. This guidance would apply in virtually all instances when such comparative financial statements are intended for inclusion in an SEC filing, but not for private companies, for which reissuance is far less common.
The standards cited below apply only when the prior period financial statements are presented comparatively with subsequent period financial statements audited by a successor auditor. The objective of these required procedures is to enable a predecessor auditor to consider whether the report previously issued is still appropriate, since it is possible that either their current form or manner of presentation, or one or more subsequent or subsequently discovered events, could make it inappropriate.
Unfortunately, however, the standards provide little or no application guidance. A predecessor auditor ordinarily would be in a position to reissue the original report on the financial statements of a prior period at the request of a former client only if able to make satisfactory arrangements with the former client that enable the performance of the procedures described below. To make such arrangements, it is generally necessary for the predecessor auditor to obtain client authorization through an engagement letter supplement which, for SEC issuers, would require audit committee approval.
All the terms of our original letter of engagement shall continue in full force and effect. We will perform the limited procedures necessary to comply with the applicable professional standards to enable us to reissue our audit report on the financial statements of the Company as of and for the year ended [date] to be presented on a comparative basis with audited financial statements of the subsequent period audited by a successor audit firm.
It is our understanding that these comparative financial statements are to be issued solely for distribution to [describe intended users]. You acknowledge that it will be necessary for us to apply additional procedures not presently contemplated to enable us to reissue our report if the financial statements we previously audited are determined to require retroactive restatement. Our invoices will be payable upon presentation.
