2019 Year-end issues for audit committees

December 10, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST


Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1.5 free CPE credit.


Join the EY Center for Board Matters for another episode in our webcast series, Better Questions for Boards, designed to provide directors with insights and questions to consider as they engage with management on a variety of complex boardroom issues.

In this episode, our panelists will explore and share developments for audit committee consideration in preparation for the 2019 year end. Consideration of these topics will help audit committees enhance dialogue with the board, management, external auditors and relevant external stakeholders and enhance their focus on long-term value creation.

Audit committees are facing new risks and opportunities as public company reporting evolves to address new matters of interest to investors and other stakeholders, new global digital tax initiatives come to the fore, and regulatory developments continue to respond to shifting public expectations.

In our annual look at developments affecting audit committees, we review:

  • Financial reporting highlights, with a focus on SEC staff areas of focus and new accounting standards
  • Tax developments, including digital tax initiatives and US tax reform
  • Regulatory matters, including SEC and PCAOB proposals and developments
  • Risk management capabilities, including a focus on trust, digital transformation and cybersecurity

The panel, moderated by Steve Klemash, Americas Leader of the EY Center for Board Matters, includes:

  • Michael Mundaca, Partner, Tax, Ernst & Young LLP
  • Paul Beswick, Partner, Assurance, Ernst & Young LLP and former chief accountant for the SEC
  • Cindy Doe, Partner, Risk, Ernst & Young, LLP
