H.R. 6021 - Small Firm House Letter (6/25/18)

June 25, 2018

Dear Chairman Hensarling and Ranking Member Waters:

The undersigned 478 people, at a minimum and representing small businesses in 49 of 50 states (there are no small brokerage firms headquartered in Wyoming…YET), strongly urge Congress to pass bipartisan legislation, The Small Business Audit Correction Act of 2018 (HR 6021), co-sponsored by Representatives French Hill (RAR) and Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), which would request a specific exemption for small, privately held, noncustodial brokers and dealers in good standing from Title One of Sarbanes-Oxley requirement to hire a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)-registered audit firm.

The legislative and regulatory burden for small businesses in our industry is substantial and small firms are struggling to survive. The signs are clear, small businesses face disproportionate compliance and audit costs and while we have seen increases in regulations and compliance costs, possibly the most unreasonable and unfair is that a small, privately held, non-custodial brokerage firm like ours is required by law and regulation to hire an expensive Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)-registered audit firm.

The PCAOB audit requirement makes sense for public companies and Broker-Dealers that carry customer funds or securities, because the investing public and markets are potentially at much greater risk from these companies. Conversely, the PCAOB requirements make no sense for privately-held, small non-custodial firms that do not carry customer funds or securities. Currently, a 3-person, non-public small business is held to the same standards as Merrill Lynch; this is not right, fair or reasonable.

The one-size-fits-all PCAOB audit standards that were designed for significantly more complex companies, and are priced exorbitantly, have been devastating to small businesses around the country. We simply cannot sustain the human and financial resource burden that these audits place on our small firms, time and
money that we should be dedicating to our customers, and we urgently need legislative relief.

Our economy is powered by small business. Our future job growth depends on small business. Our future economic prosperity and competitiveness depends on the ability of our small businesses to innovate and grow into industry leaders across the country. As small business owners and operators across the country, we
are asking for your help with this bipartisan issue of helping small businesses. Please help our firms and our community of small businesses by supporting our efforts to get the Small Business Audit Correction Act supported in Committee, brought to the floor of the House and Senate, and passed. Passing this Act will
provide significant and much needed relief for small businesses and our customers around the country.

Thank you for your attention to this important issue. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Paige Pierce at or (801) 733-9909.

Thank you,

The Small Business Audit Correction Act of 2018 (HR 6021)
