The importance of independence Why is "independence" referred to as the cornerstone of auditing? Independence is referred to as the cornerstone of auditing because without independence, the value of the auditor's attestation function would be decreased in the eyes of a third party who relies on the auditor's communication. Because the auditor's report is used by many different users with different purposes, the reports must be judged by all to be unbiased and free from favoritism for any party. 87. Understanding contingent fees A. Define the term "contingent fee." B. Explain the circumstances under which a CPA may and may not accept a contingent fee. A. A contingent fee is defined as a fee established for the performance of any service in which no fee will be charged unless a specified finding or result is obtained and any fee charged would depend upon the results. B. Contingent fees are prohibited for any client in which the auditor performs attestation services. The acceptance of a contingent fee would destroy the public confidence in the profession when performing attest services. 88. Non-audit services prohibited or permitted under Sarbanes-Oxley Harry Rawlins CPAs, are engaged by DK, Inc., a public company to perform the year-end audit. A. B.

Under what circumstances may Harry Rawlins CPAs perform certain non-audit services for DK, Inc. under Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002? A. The Sarba nesOxley Act of 2002 amen ded the Secur ities and Exch ange Act of 1934 prohi biting an audit or from perfor ming any of the follo wing servic es for a publi c audit client : Bookkeeping or other services related to the accounting records or financial statements of the audit client, Financial information systems design and implementation, Appraisal or valuation services, fairness opinions, or contribution-in-kind reports, Actuarial services, Internal audit outsourcing services, Management functions or human resources, Broker or dealer, investment adviser, or investment banking services, and Legal services and expert services unrelated to the audit. B. Tax prepa ration and other tax relate d servic es may be perfor med for DK by Harry Rawli ns, CPA only if the servic es are appro ved by the audit com mitte e and the board of direct ors. Harry Rawli ns may also be engag ed to perfor m audits on DK's intern al contr ols and other attest ation engag ement s. 89. AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, Rule 101 Livingston and Associates is a CPA firm in Las Vegas, Nevada and it performs the financial statement audit for Smith Plastics, Inc. For each non-related situation below, determine if each individual represented is independent of Smith Plastics and if Livingston and Associates (the Firm) is independent of Smith Plastics: A. B. C. D. E. A. B. C. D. E. Sam Livingston, an audit partner, meets Jill Warner, CFO of Smith Plastics after the engagement begins and they fall in love. Sam and Jill marry in Lake Tahoe, California a short time later. Sam Livingston will not be on the audit engagement team of Smith Plastics. The Firm hires Billy Messer as a staff auditor. Billy is aware that his father has a material investment in Smith Plastics. Billy will not work on the Smith Plastics audit. Lucy Brown is an audit manager at the Firm. Bob, her high school aged son, owns 1% of the equity of Smith Plastics. The investment is not material to Bob or Lucy's net worth. Lucy is assigned as the audit manager for the Smith Plastics engagement. Smith Plastics has paid all but $5,000 of the previous years audit fees. Julie Simpson, tax partner at the Firm has a 401k plan with multiple securities making up the balance. One of the securities in the plan is that of Smith Plastics which comprises .05% of the total balance of Julie's 401k. Julie does not have a significant portion of her retirement or savings in this particular plan. Sam's newly found family relationship with a person of significant influence over Smith Plastics will impair his independence. Sam is a partner in the office of the firm performing audit services and he is considered a covered member. As a covered member who is not independent of Smith Plastics, the Firm would not be independent of Smith Plastics. Because Billy's immediate family member has a material investment and he is aware of this fact, he is not independent of Smith Plastics. Billy is not on the Smith Plastics engagement, therefore, he is not a covered member and the firm is independent. Lucy has a direct financial interest in Smith Plastics. It is considered direct even though it is in the name of her dependant, Bob. As an audit manager of the Smith Plastics engagement, Lucy is a covered member and her ownership will impair the Firm's independence as well. Because Smith Plastics has an outstanding balance due to the Firm from previous audit engagements, there is a essentially a debtorcreditor relationship between client and auditor. The previous years audit fees must be paid or this relationship impairs Firm independence of Smith Plastics. The component of Julie's 401k that is represented by shares of Smith Plastics is small. The investment in Smith Plastics by the 401k is considered an indirect interest to Julie. Additionally, the 401k is not material to her net worth. As an immaterial, indirect financial interest, the investment does not impair Julie's independence of Smith Plastics. Julie's status as a covered member is somewhat unclear. However, as Julie is independent it becomes irrelevant. The Firm will also be independent of Smith Plastics. 90. Keeping client information confidential The rule on confidentiality is intended to protect the client's information. The rule, however, does not apply in certain circumstances. A. B. Explain the rule on confidentiality. Identify the circumstances in which the rule of confidentiality does not apply. A) The rule on confidentiality exists to ensure a free flow and sharing of information between the client and the auditor. The client must be assured that the auditor will not communicate confidential information to outside parties. B) The rule shall not be construed (1) to relieve members of their professional obligations to make disclosures required by GAAP, (2) to affect members' obligation to comply with subpoenas or summonses, (3) to prohibit review of a member's professional practice under AICPA or state CPA society authorization, or (4) to preclude members from initiating a complaint or responding to any inquiry made by a recognized investigative or regulatory body. 91. Engagement fees Jonathan Tubb, CPA, agrees to prepare a 2009 tax return for Don Brogan. Tubb agrees to accept 30 percent of the refund obtained as his fee. Discuss the ethics of this situation using the ethical framework. Rule 302 on contingent fees expressly prohibits the preparation of an original or amended tax return or a claim for refund for a contingent fee for any client. It is important to recognize all of the stakeholders in this situation. The client, the IRS, the CPA, and society are all stakeholders in the performance of this service by the CPA. It is important that the stakeholders be able to rely on the objectivity of the CPA in the performance of this task. 92. Independence Discuss what audit independence is and why it is important to the audit firm and the profession. What are some major threats to audit firm independence and what are some of the steps that audit firms and the profession have taken in addressing those threats? There are two types of audit independence, i.e., independence in fact and independence in appearance. Independence in fact deals with the mental state that the auditor brings to the engagement. Auditors should be objective and unbiased in their judgments and exercise sufficient professional skepticism. Independence in appearance deals with their relationships with clients. Auditors should avoid those relationships with clients that would give the appearance of a lack of independence. Both independence in appearance and in fact are important to the audit firm and the profession since the only value that an audit adds to the client is to enhance the credibility of their financial statements. Without independence the audit can add no value for the client. Independence is the cornerstone of the audit profession because it is the basis upon which the usefulness of the audit function is based. Some major threats to the audit firms independence include: Compensation schemes of partners. Understanding who the client is. Over familiarity with the client. Time pressures in performing the audit. Ability to rationalize actions. Providing Nonaudit Services. Some ways in which the audit profession and audit firms have dealt with these threats include: Establishing and monitoring codes of conduct. Balancing compensation schemes. Implementing high-level reviews of decisions to accept or retain clients. Separating consulting activities from audit activities. Performing within-firm reviews of audit work and audit documentation. Performing reviews and inspections within the profession.
