As an associate at a regional CPA firm, Freedom Rock Accounting (FRA), you are asked to serve as an associate auditor on your firm’s annual audit of a bulk milling and food processing firm, Pure Grain Milling (PGM). The audit will include a full report, including the annual audit opinion written to investors and an audit of the firm’s 401(k) plan.

You recognize that your firm’s subsidiary, Freedom Rock Financial Services (FRFS), is the financial advisor who has sold the client, a private investor, their 401(k) plan and continues to serve as the registered representative of record to the plan.

No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly.
