2016 Audit Committee Round-Up: Focal Points, Tools & Resources

January 2017


2016 did not disappoint, and included multiple developments in a broad range of corporate governance and financial reporting areas which will impact public companies and their audit committees into the foreseeable future.
BDO has compiled the following year-end snapshot of issues and selected resources that audit committees will find helpful in addressing their oversight responsibilities and communications with management and auditors during the year-end audit cycle and related reporting. While the following is intended as a high-level reference, additional resources are forthcoming and include BDO’s Q4 2016 Technical Update webinars and our annual newsletters: BDO Knows: FASB 2016 Accounting Year in Review and 2016 SEC Year in Review – all of which are or will be made available on BDO’s Center for Corporate Governance and Financial Reporting.
