Hall Chadwick is one of the handful Australian accounting firms to be accredited by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
The PCAOB is a non-profit corporation established by the US Congress to oversee the audits of public companies in order to protect the interests of investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, accurate and independent audit reports.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002 was implemented in response to a number of large-scale corporate scandals in the US. It aims to protect investors by guaranteeing that financial and audit reports are informative, fair and independent. In order to act as an independent auditor under Sarbanes-Oxley, accounting firms – both in the US and around the world – must register with PCAOB, which was created to oversee implementation of the Act.
The Hall Chadwick Sydney and Melbourne office work together with its PrimeGlobal international affiliates undertaking this form of work across Europe, North America and Asia, thereby ensuring uniform processes are utilised across all asignments worldwide. Our affiliates likewise give Hall Chadwick the ability to avail themselves of global training in this area.
Registered with the PCAOB since 2007, Hall Chadwick Chartered Accountants has provided Sarbanes-Oxley accounting services to large corporates with subsidiaries across the Asia-Pacific region.
