Rotate to Stay Fresh

BY FRANK THOMAS MURPHY

There has been much debate recently about rotating auditors to give “fresh looks” a chance.

As a guide the SEC requires companies to publish three years’ worth of statements of income and expense and cash flows.

I suggest three-year audit engagements may be in order to comply with the “fresh look” theory.
