ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the inspections conducted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), in Great Britain. The inspections were noted to be not part of the broad investigation into British accounting mischiefs, but a part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The author comments that the issue is not centered on the inspections done together with the Financial Reporting Council, but on the U.S. interference on the financial reporting process in foreign countries.
