This statement is effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2012. Refer to individual AU-C sections for specific effective date language.

This statement is a stand-alone SAS and is not a codification of all clarified SASs. This statement has been codified in AICPA Professional Standards, which contains a complete codification of the Statements on Auditing Standards. Practitioners are advised to use the codified version of this SAS as they prepare to evaluate and update their audit methodologies, and prepare for changes precipitated by the clarity project.

SAS No. 123

This statement contains amendments to:

  • SAS Nos. 117–118
  • SAS No. 122, AU–C sections

    • 200, Overall Objectives of the Independent Auditor and the Conduct of an Audit in Accordance With Generally Accepted Auditing Standards
    • 230, Audit Documentation
    • 260, The Auditor’s Communication With Those Charged With Governance
    • 705, Modifications to the Opinion in the Independent Auditor’s Report
    • 915, Reports on Application of Requirements of an Applicable Financial Reporting Framework

These amendments conform SAS Nos. 117–118 to SAS No. 122 and address other changes necessitated by the Clarity Project.

These amendments, which have been issued in this statement to aid transparency in following the disposition of the amendments proposed in the exposure draft of this SAS, have been codified in AICPA Professional Standards.

This statement is effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2012. Refer to individual amendments for specific effective date language.

SAS No. 124

SAS No. 124 supersedes the requirements and guidance in SAS No. 51, Reporting on Financial Statements Prepared for Use in Another Country, and redrafts that statement to apply the ASB’s established clarity drafting conventions. This statement requires the auditor, in instances where a report that is to be used in the United States was prepared in accordance with a financial reporting framework generally accepted in another country, to include an emphasis-of-matter paragraph to highlight the foreign financial reporting framework, but permits the auditor to express an unqualified opinion.

This statement has been codified in AICPA Professional Standards, which contains a complete codification of the Statements on Auditing Standards. Practitioners are advised to use the codified version of this SAS as they prepare to evaluate and update their audit methodologies, and prepare for changes precipitated by the clarity project.

This statement is effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2012.
