AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide Gaming
- This AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide has been fully conformed to reflect the new standards resulting from the Clarity Project. This year’s edition of the guide fully incorporates the clarified auditing standards into all guide content, so that auditors can further their understanding of the clarified auditing standards, as well as begin updating their audit methodologies, resources, and tools prior to the clarified auditing standards’ effective date. Additionally, this approach gives auditors the opportunity to review and understand the changes made by their third-party audit methodology and resource providers, if applicable. The clarified auditing standards are effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2012 (calendar year 2012 audits). Auditors should continue to use the 2011 edition of this guide until the clarified auditing standards become effective for the auditors’ engagements.
