We’re helping CPAs improve their audit quality—here’s how

In a rapidly evolving business environment with new technologies changing the way we work, it’s more important than ever for CPAs to commit to performing high-quality audits. That’s why the AICPA launched the Enhancing Audit Quality initiative, or EAQ, in 2014. Through EAQ, the AICPA analyzes data to determine the areas where firms need to improve quality most. Then, we develop relevant, free resources and education firms can use in their practice.

In the past few months, EAQ has helped the profession make further progress toward improved audit quality. Read the “Enhancing Audit Quality: 2018 Mid-Year Progress Report” below to learn more about that progress and to access free resources you can use to improve your audits.
