Accounting and Review Services Committee

    Accounting and Review Services Committee Overview 

    The Accounting and Review Services Committee is the AICPA’s senior committee for compilations or reviews and is designated to issue pronouncements in connection with the unaudited financial statements or other unaudited financial information of nonpublic entities. Its mission is to develop and communicate comprehensive performance and reporting standards and practice guidance to enable accountants of non issuers to provide high quality, objective compilation and review services in the best interests of the profession and the users of compiled and reviewed financial statements, with the ultimate purpose of serving the public interest. Learn more about ARSC in its Operating Policies.

    The Accounting and Review Services Committee promulgates Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services (SSARS) and, as a part of its due process, releases Exposure Drafts of proposed SSARS. The AICPA also issues interpretive and other publications to assist practitioners in understanding and applying the standards.
