Common Accounting Malpractice Questions:

What is Accounting Malpractice and Auditing Malpractice?

Accounting malpractice is an accountant’s error, omission or deviation from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) resulting in financial loss. Auditing malpractice, similarly, is an auditor's error, omission or deviation from Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS) resulting in financial loss.

There are two general categories of accounting malpractice: simple negligence and gross negligence. Simple accounting negligence occurs when an accounting professional inadvertently deviates from GAAS or GAAP or makes an accounting error. Gross negligence occurs when an accounting professional intentionally deviates from GAAP or GAAS, manipulates accounts or knowingly deviates to achieve a predetermined end result.

What elements must be shown to prevail in an Accounting Malpractice case?

The basic elements which must be established in a successful accounting malpractice claim include:

  • A duty was owed by the accounting professional to the plaintiff
  • The accounting professional breached that duty
  • The plaintiff was injured as a result of the accounting professionals’ breach of duty.

What is negligence?

Negligence is the result of someone failing to act in a responsible manner and in accordance with generally acceptable guidelines. Failure to act responsibly or ethically often causes injury to another party and the injured party has a right to be compensated for injury sustained as a result of the negligent act.

What guidelines are CPA professionals expected to follow?

  1. The Public Interest - Persons using the CPA title shall accept the obligation to act in a way that will serve the public interest, honor the public trust, and demonstrate commitment to professionalism.
  2. Due Care - Persons using the CPA title shall comply with state law and the profession's technical and ethical standards, maintain competence and strive to improve the quality of services, and discharge professional responsibility to the best of the CPA's ability.
  3. Objectivity - Objectivity is to be maintained by persons using the CPA title. These persons shall:
  • Avoid rendering professional services where actual or perceived conflicts of interest exist.
  • Be independent in fact and appearance when providing auditing or other attestation services.

How long do I have to file my Accounting Malpractice claim?

This depends on the state in which the Accounting Malpractice occurred. Some states require Legal Malpractice claims to be filed within two (2) years of the date the Accounting Malpractice was identified; some states allow more time, some allow less. If you are concerned the statute of limitations might be running out for your claim, contact one of our experienced Trial Lawyers.
