Addressing Challenges for Highly Subjective and Complex Accounting Areas

A report published by the CAQ on behalf of the Anti-Fraud Collaboration, Addressing Challenges for Highly Subjective and Complex Accounting Areas compiles leading-practice recommendations from dozens of company executives, corporate directors, and auditors who attended two 2016 workshops to discuss ways to help deter fraud and enhance financial reporting. Taken together, these insights illuminate and underscore how improved accounting policies and internal controls related to highly subjective and complex accounting areas are key for stemming financial reporting fraud and reducing the number of restatements.
