In an AUP, the CPA will execute a specific procedure agreed in advance with the client, and report back on the findings.
AUPs are highly flexible and can be easily adapted to specific client needs. They are commonly used for evaluation of financial statement items. Examples include but are not limited to:
|IPO||Short reviews and comfort letters for financial statement items|
|Audit of R&D funds for outsourced research contracts|
|Client asset segregation|
Financial due diligence of acquisition targets
In AUPs, the auditor will execute the agreed-upon procedures and report back on the findings, but the CPA will not express assurance. Clients are responsible for drawing their own conclusions.
For Assurance Services, the CPA will provide confirmation and express assurance on the findings.
