Jan 21, 2020 | Exposure Drafts and Consultation Papers
Comments due by: May 04, 2020
The proposed revisions to the fee-related provisions of the code include:
- A prohibition on firms allowing the audit fee to be influenced by the provision of services other than audit to the audit client;
- In the case of PIEs, a requirement to cease to act as auditor if fee dependency on the audit client continues beyond a specified period; and
- Communication of fee-related information to TCWG and to the public to assist their judgments about auditor independence.
The Fees ED also includes enhanced guidance on identifying, evaluating and addressing threats to independence in relation to other fee-related matters, including the proportion of fees for services other than audit to the audit fee.
