What Is a Consent of Auditor? Going Public Lawyers

Consent of Auditor Attorney

Item 601 of Regulation S-K requires issuers to file a Consent of Auditor as an exhibit to certain forms and files with the SEC including registration statements under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”).  A company’s Independent registered public accounting firm must provide a Consent of Auditor (an auditor’s consent and audit report) in the Securities Act registration statements and Annual Reports on Form 10-K.  The “Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm” must contain a conformed signature of the accounting firm and date of issuance of the audit report.  The auditor’s report should appropriately identify all periods and financial statements that have been audited.  Failure to provide this information in the auditor’s report will likely cause the SEC to require that the company amend the relevant filing.
