New in GAAS 2017:
In 2016, the AICPA's Auditing Standards Board completed a major stage of its clarity project and issued SSAE No. 18. The new guidance is effective for reports dated May 1, 2017. SSAE No. 18 replaces the attestation standards, introducing major new requirements that will change practice. In this transition year, guidance on the extant attestation standards is also included. Wiley Practitioner's Guide to GAAS 2017 is completely updated to reflect all the clarified standards and provide valuable implementation information.
