Comment letter , PwC US Aug 18, 2017

We give feedback to the SEC in moving forward with PCAOB's standard on enhanced auditor reporting.

Overview

PwC responded to the SEC's public consultation on the PCAOB's adoption of a new auditing standard addressing enhancements to the auditor's report. PwC supports changes to the auditor's report that are responsive to the feedback provided by users, while also maintaining or improving audit quality. Most notably, the PCAOB's standard would require auditors to communicate critical audit matters (or CAMs) in the auditor's report for certain entities. The auditor's report would also include a statement containing the year the auditor began serving consecutively as the company’s auditor (“auditor tenure”).
