ACC 545 Week 1 Individual Assignment CPA Report

As the CPA for a large organization, you were asked by your manager to provide information to outside CPAs who are examining a subsidiary that has been set up as a corporation. As part of their review, the CPAs have asked you to provide them with the following explanations:


  • The methodology used to determine deferred taxes
  • The procedures for reporting accounting changes and error corrections
  • The rationale behind establishing the subsidiary as a corporation


Prepare your response to the three questions. Before submitting your response, your manager would like to know a little bit more about the request. She has asked you to tell her what your professional responsibilities are as a CPA, and the difference between a review and an audit.


You should provide draft responses to the above questions as well as providing your manager with a summary of your responsibilities in one document (no more than 1,050 words).
