In addition, TPA 8800.23, “Use of Component Materiality When the Component Is Not Reported On Separately,” has been revised. For more information on AU-C Section 600, see “Clarifying the Standard for Group Audits.”

Meanwhile, TPA 9100.07 has been issued to provide nonauthoritative guidance stating that auditors can comply with a requirement by naming the city and state where the auditor practices, in the firm’s letterhead on which the auditor’s report is issued.

AU-C Section 700, Forming an Opinion and Reporting on Financial Statements, requires the auditor’s report to name the city and state where the auditor practices.
