Big week for the Big Four I do not think the SEC case will go well for the accounting firms. The final round of pre-trial sparring ended in a ruling requiring the firms to disclose their fees from auditing U.S. listed companies.  The firms resisted providing this data, but the judge noted …”it would be helpful to know if a permanent bar on practicing before the Commission for any purpose, even in connection with performing audit work for non-China-based U.S. issuers, would essentially put a Respondent out of business entirely.”  I know the answer to that question.  No, it would not put the firms out of business entirely, but it will hurt really badly. [China Accounting Blog]
