1 priority. “In order to drive continuous improvements in quality, we are transforming the audit to leverage innovative technologies, along with enhancing the skillsets of our talent to prepare them for a digitally driven future,” they said. “We are confident that our ongoing digital transformation, along with the investments we continue to make in our audit processes, policies, and quality controls, are resulting in significant enhancements to our audit quality.” EY’s significant deficiencies declined to 18.3 percent (11 of 60 audits) in 2019 from 25.9 percent (14/54) in 2018. The areas identified in 2019 primarily related to testing design or operating effectiveness of controls and testing controls and/or substantive testing over accuracy and completeness of data or reports. The areas with most frequent deficiencies in 2019 were revenue and related accounts (7), business combinations (2), and long-lived assets (2). In both 2019 and 2018, EY’s revenue deficiencies related to control and substantive testing, including controls over systems, and the business combination deficiencies primarily related to testing controls and evaluating reasonableness of management’s assumptions relating to fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Like Deloitte, EY was noted for noncompliance for failing to review and retain management representations relating to foreign affiliates (2/14). “Performing high-quality audits with independence, integrity and professional skepticism is at the heart of our responsibilities as auditors. While we are facing significant uncertainties in our working world and society in general right now, our commitment to audit quality remains constant,” said EY U.S. Chair and Managing Partner Kelly Grier and U.S. Vice Chair of Assurance John King in response. The PCAOB also published 2019 inspection reports for RSM, Grant Thornton, and BDO, with each showing improvement from 2018. Here are the highlights: Significant deficiencies for KPMG declined to 29.3 percent (17 of 58 audits) in 2019 from 36.5 percent (19/52) in 2018. The firm had been at 50 percent (26/52) as recently as 2017. KPMG’s most common deficiencies in 2019 related to failure to perform substantive procedures because of deficiencies in testing controls and overreliance on controls, insufficient testing to address identified risks, and insufficient evaluation of significant assumptions or data the issuer used to develop estimates. Deficiencies in 2019 were most frequent, and almost the same in number as 2018, in the audit areas of revenue and related accounts (9), business combinations (3), inventory (2), allowance for loan losses (2), and derivatives (2). In both years, the significant number of deficiencies in revenue related to testing of controls and substantive testing. Other instances of noncompliance included failures to make required communications to audit committees about other firms participating in the audit (3/19) and omitted information on Form AP relating to audit participation by other accounting firms (2/20). There was also inaccurate language relating to description of a critical audit matter (CAM) in 1 of 3 relevant audits. “We recognize the importance the capital markets places [sic] on high quality audits and consistently executing at that level is our highest priority,” said KPMG Chair and CEO Paul Knopp and Vice Chair - Audit Scott Flynn in response. “To that end, we remain dedicated to the continuous improvement of our audit engagement performance and our system of audit quality control.” PwC’s significant deficiencies increased to 30 percent (18 of 60 audits) in 2019 from 25.5 percent (14 out of 55) in 2018.
