§ 59. Reporting of Restatements.

(a) To comply with the requirements of paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Business and Professions Code Section 5063, a licensee who issues a report on a client's restated financial statement shall report to the Board:
(1) Any restatement of a financial statement reporting the correction of any error in a previously issued financial statement of a client that is a government agency located in California, when the financial restatement(s) exceeds the planning materiality used by the licensee in conjunction with the current year audit. For purposes of this paragraph, planning materiality means the planned level of misstatements, individually or in aggregate, that would cause the financial statements to not be presented fairly, in all material respects, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.
(2) Any restatement of a financial statement of a charitable organization registered by the Office of the Attorney General's Registry of Charitable Trusts which is issued for purposes of correcting any error in a previously issued financial statement and which has resulted in the filing of an amended or superceding Internal Revenue Service Form 990 of 990PF.
(b) The report required by subsection (a) shall be made by the licensee issuing the report on the restatement even if the licensee did not perform the original audit. The report required by subsection (a) shall be provided to the Board within 30 days of issuance of the restatement, shall be signed by the licensee, and shall set forth the facts which constitute the reportable event including an explanation of the reason for the restatement. The report made under paragraph (a)(1) of this section shall include copies of the original and the restated financial statements. The report made under paragraph (a)(2) of this section shall include only those portions of the original and the amended Forms 990 or 990PF related to the reissued financial statement.
