Auditor Independence With Respect to Certain Loans or Debtor-Creditor Relationships
Document Number: 2019-13429
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-05
Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') is adopting amendments to its auditor independence rules to refocus the analysis that must be conducted to determine whether an auditor is independent when the auditor has a lending relationship with certain shareholders of an audit client at any time during an audit or professional engagement period. The amendments focus the analysis on beneficial ownership rather than on both record and beneficial ownership; replace the existing 10 percent bright-line shareholder ownership test with a ``significant influence'' test; add a ``known through reasonable inquiry'' standard with respect to identifying beneficial owners of the audit client's equity securities; and exclude from the definition of ``audit client,'' for a fund under audit, any other funds, that otherwise would be considered affiliates of the audit client under the rules for certain lending relationships. The amendments will more effectively identify debtor-creditor relationships that could impair an auditor's objectivity and impartiality, as opposed to certain more attenuated relationships that are unlikely to pose such threats, and thus will focus the analysis on those borrowing relationships that are important to investors.

Date: 2019-07-03

The rule also modifies the delegation rules by authorizing the Federal Reserve Banks to approve applications and notices concerning mergers and acquisitions that do not exceed the Board's delegation criteria for competition after including deposits of qualifying credit unions weighted at 50 percent and deposits of ``commercially active'' thrift institutions weighted in most cases at 100 percent. In a limited number of cases, deposits of all thrifts would be weighted at 100 percent. To ensure the Board's delegation rules are consistent, the rule also revises or rescinds, as appropriate, certain existing delegations to the Federal Reserve Banks, the Secretary of the Board, and the Director of the Division of Supervision and Regulation.
