  • Failure to Design Audit to Detect Fraud Can Lead to Liability

    On Dec. 28, 2017, a federal court in Alabama ruled in favor of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in a case against PwC arising from a bank failure after a massive fraud was discovered between a bank and one of its customers. This was the second case against PwC related to the failure of Colonial Bank.
  • The Practice of Accounting vs. the Practice of Law

    There is considerable disagreement between CPAs and attorneys as to exactly what CPAs can do in the area of advice and what constitutes the practice of law – especially since “practice of law” is a nebulous term without clear definition. Most of the disagreement often seems to come to a boil in the area of tax practice. The situation hasn’t been helped or made any clearer now that many big firms employ lawyers who prepare tax returns.
  • Thoughtful Professional Collaborations Can Bolster Your Common Client’s Success

    The financial plan roadmap typically covers strategies for income planning, wealth management, tax minimization, legacy planning, and more. Leveraging all these capabilities requires a “big-picture perspective.” For many CPA firms, particularly smaller firms, integrating the services of other professionals will enhance and support this holistic approach.
