Public Company Audit Assistance

Public Company Audit Assistance

To prepare or issue an audit report for a public company or to play certain roles in those audits, an accounting firm must register with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. As such, the firm must satisfy stringent standards that encompass not only an obligation to satisfy the independence criteria applicable to the engagement set out in the rules of the PCAOB, but also an obligation to satisfy all other independence criteria applicable to the engagement, including criteria set out in the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission under federal securities laws.

In the performance of any professional service, a PCAOB member firm must meet and comply with PCAOB-established professional practice standards, including strict guidelines on ethics and independence. They must maintain objectivity and integrity, be free of conflicts of interest, and not misrepresent facts or subordinate judgment to others. HBK business advisory services accommodate PCAOB-registered firm regulatory constraints.
