What Is An Agreed-Upon Procedures Engagement?

An Agreed-Upon Procedure (AUP) is a type of engagement in which a practitioner performs specific procedures agreed upon by the client. The practitioner will present a report outlining the results of the procedures performed; this report issued is not intended to provide a formal opinion as to whether a company’s financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting standards. Instead, the report just presents the results of the procedures performed.

Agreed-upon procedures can be helpful for businesses that need a report of findings on specific matters but do not require a full audit.

Internal Control Testing

Internal Control Testing is a specific type of agreed-upon procedure that is used to assess whether the controls are properly detecting or preventing material errors or purposeful misstatements in financial reports. This can significantly reduce risk.


Advantages to an Agreed Upon Procedure Engagement

There are many reasons why a business might want to engage in this type of attest service. The biggest reason is that an agreed-upon procedure (AUP) is a cost-effective way to reduce risk compared to a full audit. An AUP can be performed at any time during the year and gives you the flexibility to choose only those procedures you feel are necessary.

AUP engagements can be crucial if a business owner suspects their financial results are being misrepresented. It can also be helpful with M&A due diligence or to determine compliance with specific regulatory requirements. Overall, Agreed-Upon Procedure engagements can help identify areas of improvement and potential risks that may become a problem in an audit.
