Description

The Forecasts and Projections Audit Issues Task Force developed this proposed statement of position (SOP) in response to questions raised by practitioners about some of the procedural and reporting guidance contained in the AICPA Guide for Prospective Financial Statements. This SOP included some of these questions and the recommended responses. Specifically, the SOP provides additional guidance in these areas: 1. Reporting on financial forecasts that include a projected sale of an entity's real estate investment; 2. Sales prices assumed in a projection of the sale of an entity's real estate investment; 3. Reporting on information accompanying a financial forecast in an accountant-submitted document; 4. Financial projections included in general-use documents; 5. Support for tax assumptions; 6. Periods covered by an accountant's report on prospective financial statements.
