Private Company Financial Reporting Panelists Named


The AICPA, the Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF) and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) on Friday announced the members of the new blue-ribbon panel on U.S. accounting standards for private companies.

 

The 18-member panel includes lenders, investors and business owners as well as preparers and auditors. The panel is expected to issue recommendations to the FAF Board of Trustees in about a year after reviewing issues affecting the current system of standard setting for private companies in the U.S.

 

FAF announced last month that Rick Anderson will lead the panel. Anderson is chairman of Moss Adams LLP and is a FAF trustee. (Click here to read an interview with Anderson.)
