Senior level CPAs have turned much more pessimistic about the economy. And somewhat surprisingly, they are partly concerned about deflation.

Just 21 percent of CPAs serving as C-suite executives said they are optimistic about the US economy, way down from 40 percent who were optimistic in May and the lowest level since April 2009, according to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School's late [...] stephentaub@yahoo.com Thu, 12 Aug 2010 23:00:00 +0100 Risk inflation economy deflation CPAs Cash Careers/Management Reining in the PCAOB http://www.cfozone.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&show=Reining-in-the-PCAOB.html&Itemid=713

The PCAOB has had a pretty good run of late. It all started with the SCOTUS handing them a loss that was really a win and the Board has, most recently, gotten ambitious with new risk assessment standards. What's more is the call of acting Chair Dan Goelzer to have the Board's enforcement inspections held publicly so audit firms can't get all mysterio about what they did and [...] jobs@cfozone.com Wed, 11 Aug 2010 23:00:00 +0100 Securities and Exchange Commission Sarbanes-Oxley Public Company Accounting Oversight Board PCAOB CPAs compliance Big Four Big 4 auditors auditing audit Accounting PwC's UK affiliate in hot water over JP Morgan mess http://www.cfozone.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&show=PwCs-UK-affiliate-in-hot-water-over-JP-Morgan-mess.html&Itemid=713

Now £15.7 billion may not seem like much to you if you are, say, Bill Gates or Ben Bernanke but for PricewaterhouseCoopers UK, it may be the magic number that gets the firm into a whole steaming pile of trouble.

UK regulators allege that from 2002 to 2009, PwC client JP Morgan shuffled client money from its futures and options business into its own accounts, which is obv [...] jobs@cfozone.com Fri, 11 Jun 2010 23:00:00 +0100 PwC PricewaterhouseCoopers JPMorgan Chase JP Morgan Chase CPAs compliance banking industry auditors auditing audit Accounting Girls, girls, girls! http://www.cfozone.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&show=Girls-girls-girls-.html&Itemid=713

At the risk of setting off a corporate war between the sexes, I feel compelled to report the findings of a new study that shows women are more trustworthy than men in reporting companies' financial results.

Come to think of it, the findings are in line with the general impression I've gotten that the distaff sex is better than its counterpart at financial regulation.

After all, current and former financial cops like Sheila Bair, Mary Schapiro, Elizabeth Warren and Brooksle [...] ronaldfink6@gmail.com Wed, 05 May 2010 23:00:00 +0100 Repo 105 Regulation Lehman Brothers financial statements financial reporting financial crisis CPAs Careers/Management C-level executives accrual method Accounting Another case of "What are auditors for, anyway?" http://www.cfozone.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&show=Another-case-of-What-are-auditors-for-anyway-.html&Itemid=713

Last week, the SEC continued its "Bustin' Up Fraud" tour by charging Memphis-based Morgan Keegan & Company, Morgan Asset Management, and two employees, James C. Kelsoe, Jr. and Joseph Thompson Weller with "fraudulently overstating the value of securities backed by subprime mortgages."

The long/short of it is that SEC's Enforcement Divish alleges th [...] jobs@cfozone.com Thu, 15 Apr 2010 23:00:00 +0100 Securities and Exchange Commission PwC PricewaterhouseCoopers CPAs compliance auditors auditing Accounting accountants Nets try tax prep promotion to boost attendance http://www.cfozone.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&show=Nets-try-tax-prep-promotion-to-boost-attendance.html&Itemid=713

Okay, who's got no plans on Friday? Work? Bah. How about you go to the Nets game against the Orlando Magic instead? Sure they're terrible but you'll get a coupon that is redeemable at a Roni Deutch Tax Center to get your state return done for free (a $29 value!).

Yes, we said the Nets are terrible but to put it more accurately, they're atro [...] jobs@cfozone.com Wed, 03 Mar 2010 23:00:00 +0100 taxes promotions CPAs career/management
