Quality of Practice
Since 1977, when Withum became one of the first non-national accounting firms to voluntarily join the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“AICPA”) SEC Practice Section and the Private Companies Practice Section, we have participated in the AICPA peer review program encompassing in-depth evaluation of the elements of the Firm’s system of quality control, including but not limited to inspecting the Firm’s policies and procedures, interviewing professional staff and inspecting a sample of documentation for the Firm’s engagements, including specific areas identified by the profession for inspection. Withum has successfully passed all 15 peer reviews.
In addition, Withum subjects its SEC public company and broker-dealer practices to periodic inspection by the Public Company Accounting and Oversight Board (PCAOB) and is committed to working with the PCAOB to enhance audit quality.
