Description

The proposed SSARS defines two categories of professional requirements: (1) Unconditional requirements. The accountant is required to comply with an unconditional requirement in all cases in which the circumstances exist to which the requirement applies. An unconditional requirement is indicated by the words must or is required. (2) Presumptively mandatory requirements. The accountant is also required to comply with a presumptively mandatory requirement in all cases in which the circumstances exist to which the requirement applies. The accountant may depart from a presumptively mandatory requirement provided that he or she justifies the departure and how alternative procedure(s) performed in the circumstances were sufficient to achieve the objectives of the requirement. The word should indicates a presumptively mandatory requirement.
