[S-X 2-01(a)] However, S-X 2-01(a) does not affect the applicability of any other registration, licensing or qualification requirements that may apply in any State or competent jurisdiction.
The staff may question the location from which the audit report was rendered if there does not appear to be a logical relationship between that location and the location of the registrant’s corporate offices, its principal operations, its principal assets, or where the audit work was principally conducted.
It must include representations that the audit is conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) for issuers or U. GAAS for non-issuers (with certain exceptions noted in Section 4210.4).
Audit reports on non-issuer financial statements may, but are not required to, refer to PCAOB standards, except in certain cases.
Registrants should consult with CF-OCA prior to filing any S-X 3-10(g) financial statements that are not audited by a PCAOB- registered firm.
The audited balance sheet of a non-issuer general partner that is included in a transactional filing or registration statement of a limited partnership issuer is not required to be audited by a PCAOB registered firm.
The other auditor must register with the PCAOB if it meets the “substantial role” threshold defined in PCAOB Rule 1001(p)(ii) in the audit of the issuer, regardless of whether the principal auditor refers to the work of the other auditor.
