Some of the most important aspects of SOX include: (1) The creation of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) to control the auditing profession; (2) The added new rules for auditors; (3) The added new roles for audit committees; (3) The added new rules for management, and (4) The added new internal control requirements. SOX applies to publicly held companies and their auditors and was designed to prevent financial statement fraud, make financial reports more transparent, protect investors, strengthen internal controls, and punish executives who perpetrate fraud. SOX was important to accountants because it is the most important business-oriented legislation in the last 80 years. It changed the way boards of directors and management operate and had a dramatic impact on CPAs who audit them.
