This proposed statement amends SSARS 2, by deleting footnote 8 in paragraph 16 of that statement. This proposed statement would not change the basic position of SSARS 2 that a successor accountant is not required to communicate with a predecessor in connection with acceptance of an engagement to compile or review the financial statements of a nonpublic entity. This proposed statement requires the predecessor accountant to respond promptly and fully to such inquiries in ordinary circumstances.
