‘Hosting Services’ have been a common topic on many accountancy blogs and journals since the AICPAs’ Professional Ethics Executive Committee finalized a ‘Hosting Services’ Interpretation in August 2017. While the effective date for its implementation had been delayed till July 2019, the topic continued to remain a source of concern and discussion.
The Hosting Service interpretation considered the various factors that firms were to adhere to while dealing with a client’s data, along with potential problems faced in the internet centered age of accounting and document management. Numerous blogs discussed the interpretation and what it connotes; and soon a trend appeared – managing client’s data was not only a matter of ethical importance but also a tool to improving organizational efficiency within a firm.
