FD Partner appointed to AICPA Technical Issues Committee
Audit Partner Sean Lager Appointed To Key CPA Committee
Atlanta, GA. September 30, 2014. Frazier & Deeter Audit Partner Sean Lager has been appointed to the Technical Issues Committee of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
“We are pleased to have Sean serve our profession through this prestigious appointment to the Technical Issues Committee,” said Frazier & Deeter Managing partner Seth McDaniel.
The AICPA Technical Issues Committee (TIC) is a committee of CPA practitioners working with the Financial Accounting Standards Board, Auditing Standards Board and Governmental Accounting Standards Board to represent the views of accounting firms and their clients in the standards-setting process.
“I’m excited to be able to represent Frazier & Deeter’s clients and other accounting firms as a part of the Technical Issues Committee,” said Lager. “Today’s businesses and CPAs operate in a highly complex regulatory environment and it is important to help CPA firms keep up with the latest technical standards.”
TIC provides standards-setters with practical assistance as well; such as "field testing" portions of proposed guidance, providing practical examples of potential implementation difficulties and serving on standard-setting task forces.
TIC also helps firms keep up with changing technical standards through the Technical Issues Alert. The TIC Alert reports on selected new and proposed standards developed by accounting, auditing, ethics, government and other key standard setters that are especially relevant to local firms and private entities. It also alerts practitioners to available non-authoritative guidance and potential changes in practice.
Lager has been appointed a member of the Technical Issues Committee for the 2013-2014 service year that will begin this October.
