PCAOB Dangles Credit to Entice Cooperation The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board has issued a policy statement that says it will take into account any “extraordinary cooperation” on the part of auditors or the firms they represent when deciding the outcome of a PCAOB investigation. The board is encouraging auditors to consider “voluntary and timely self-reporting, voluntary and timely remedial or corrective action, and voluntary and timely substantial assistance” when the board or another enforcement agency is investigating an issue.
