Proposed Statement On Auditing Standards : Auditing Accounting Estimates ;Auditing Accounting Estimates; Exposure Draft (American Institute Of Certified Public Accountants), 1987, Feb. 14, American Institute Of Certified Public Accountants. Auditing Standards Board Jan 1987

Proposed Statement On Auditing Standards : Auditing Accounting Estimates ;Auditing Accounting Estimates; Exposure Draft (American Institute Of Certified Public Accountants), 1987, Feb. 14, American Institute Of Certified Public Accountants. Auditing Standards Board

Statements of Position

Accounting estimates are based on subjective factors. Consequently, controls over estimates are often more difficult to establish than controls over factual information, and the potential for bias in estimates may be greater. Although professional standards provide guidance about auditing some specific accounting estimates, no general guidance concerning the audit of accounting estimates has been established. This proposed Statement is intended to provide that guidance.

Auditing Standards Board

Statements of Position

Management, audit committees, and others repsonsible for internal control in an entity have indicated that they have difficulty understanding the auditor's report on material weaknesses in internal control identified in a financial statement audit. These users, and many auditors, also have indicated that the concept of a material weakness in internal control is ambiguous and, therefore, difficult to apply in practice. They also believe that because the concept relates only to material misstatements of financial statements, some significant internal control deficiencies may not be reported. This proposed statement on auditing statnadards would clarify report language and replace the concept ...

Auditing Standards Board

Statements of Position

Financial statement users are interested in information about the risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect an entity's future cash flows, results of operations, and financial condition. A principal source of such information is the Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) that entities subject to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are required to present. Because of the importance of MD&A to users, an entity may engage an independent public accountant to attest to the representations contained in that information. This proposed statement on standards for attestation engagements provides performance and reporting guidance for such engagements.

Statements of Position

Until certain practical limitations and cost benefit considerations have been overcome, the incremental cost of providing free travel awards generally should be accrued when the award levels are achieved. Developmental costs related to preparation of operations of new routes should not be capitalized as previously permitted under the AICPA Industry Audit Guide, Audits of Airlines. The costs of acquiring take-off and landing slots are identifiable intangible assets that should be accounted for in conformity with Accounting Principles Board (APB) Opinion No. 17, Intangible Assets. The costs associated with airframe modifications that enhance the usefulness of the aircraft should be capitalized ...

Proposed Audit And Accounting Guide : Audits Of Government Contractors ;Audits Of Government Contractors; Exposure Draft (American Institute Of Certified Public Accountants), 1987, Nov. 2, American Institute Of Certified Public Accountants. Government Contractors Guide Special Committee

Statements of Position

A significant period of time has elapsed since the publication in 1975 of the Audits of Government Contractors. In the interim, the pace of change in both the government contracts process and financial reporting requirements has accelerated, thus increasing the need for further guidance. Therefore, the guide has been revised to assist independent accountants in examining and reporting on financial statements of government contractors. The government contracts environment grows more complex with the addition of each new statute and regulation, and the significant rate of change in those regulations requires constant attention and guidance to remain current. Furthermore, effective application ...
