The AICPA’s Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) has proposed some new independence rules related to compliance audits. The AICPA is aware that much of the new COVID-19 related funding is causing many entities who have no been subject to audit requirements or single audit requirements historically to now be subject to them. They add 2 definitions and revise the definition of financial statement attest client to help identify which independence rules apply to these engagements. Comments are due September 1, 2022.
