At AgeeFisherBarrett, LLC, we have developed relationships with a number of important associations and organizations to help in the development and delivery of our services. Our affiliations include:

AICPA

AgeeFisherBarrett is proud to be a member of the AICPA

To help CPAs meet the challenges of performing quality audits in this unique and complex area, the AICPA has established the Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center, a firm-based voluntary membership center for firms that audit employee benefit plans. Employee benefit plan audits include pension, health and welfare, and 401(k) plans subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) under the regulatory authority of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

PCAOB

The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) was created by the Sarbanes-Oxley act of 2002, to oversee the auditors of public companies in order to protect the interests of investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, fair, and independent audit reports.

This new body is required by Federal law to set the standards that guide the audits of publicly traded companies and to establish and implement the funding structure that supports its activities.

In addition, a publicly traded Company’s outside auditors can no longer perform certain services for them.

These services include, but not limited to:

  • Section 404 Internal Controls
  • Internal Audits
  • SAS 70 Audits
  • Information Technology Services

AgeeFisherBarrett, LLC is a registered accounting firm with the Public Company Oversight Accounting Board and can perform audits and opinions on the financial statement of publicly traded companies as well as other services on publicly traded companies where we are not the outside auditors.
