Audit partner names to be made public

Posted by Howard Berkenblit on December 16, 2015 at 5:06 PM

Subject only to SEC approval, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board adopted rules yesterday that will require the disclosure of the name of the engagement partner and other accounting firms participating in an audit. The new rules will require auditing firms to file a new "Form AP" beginning in early 2017. For additional information and links to the rules and new Form AP, click here.
