2021 Audit and Attestation Conference

BURLINGAME, CA, Oct. 1, 2021—Attestation services continue to gain prominence in the marketplace as the need for independent, third parties providing assurance over topics other than financial statements are being mandated by regulators and local, state and federal or provisions within service agreements as a contractor. CPAs, known as one of the most trusted advisers to the business marketplace, are moving into providing these assurance or attestation engagements because of their ability to audit and attest examinations, reviews or agreed-upon procedure reports.
