PR prompts

This semi-annual newsletter is intended for peer reviewers to share with their peer review clients. The newsletter content is compiled by the AICPA and includes updates in the Peer Review Program, newly effective/recently issued audit and accounting standards and other available resources.

The PR prompts newsletter is formatted, but unbranded so the reviewer’s firm can apply its logo/branding.

Take a look below to access past and current editions of PR prompts.
