Peer Review

All CPAs that issue financial statements in the course of practicing public accounting and who are also members of the AICPA must undergo a peer review once every three years in order to comply with membership requirements and to provide assurance that the CPA is complying with professional standards in the issuance of financial statements.

Most states’ Board of Accountancy require that firms participate in peer review to be licensed as a CPA in their state. CPA’s who meet certain criteria prescribed by the AICPA are qualified to perform peer reviews. Sullivan Bille and members of our peer review team have been performing peer reviews since 1978.

Our goal is to assist firms with complying with the requirements of peer review while focusing on ways we can efficiently serve our clients while keeping up with ever-changing professional standards.
