H.R. 6021 - Small Firm House Letter (7/18/18)

July 18, 2018

The Honorable Jeb Hensarling                 The Honorable Maxine Waters
Chairman                                                  Ranking Member
Committee on Financial Services             Committee on Financial Services
U.S. House of Representatives                 U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515                           Washington, DC 20515

Dear Chairman Hensarling and Ranking Member Waters:

The undersigned 803 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 (H.R. 6021), co-sponsored by Representatives French Hill (R-AR) and Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), which would request a very narrow and specific exemption for small businesses which are privately held, non-custodial brokers and dealers in good standing from the Title One of Sarbanes-Oxley requirement to engage a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)-registered audit firm for their regulatorily-required (federal and state) annual audits.

Small firms in the brokerage industry face disproportionate regulatory compliance and audit costs and we are struggling to survive. Main Street broker-dealers matter because we represent a large portion of the membership of FINRA and we are going out of business at a rate of approximately 10 firms per month which means small firm customers are losing their right to choose local, loyal, sound advice from the people they trust. Additionally, while as small businesses we only employ 10.5% of the Registered Representatives in the industry, that is still 67,271 individuals and families who depend on us for their livelihood and we take that responsibility very seriously. 

Small, privately held, non-custodial firms like ours are required by law to hire an expensive Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)-registered audit firm. In surveys conducted with a portion of the FINRA small business community (590 firms), the average pre-PCAOB audit fee was $9,246 while the average post-PCAOB audit fee has increased every year since inception and in 2017 was $17,487. Keeping in mind our limited sample set, which we believe produced conservative averages, the increase of audit expenses has resulted in at least $27,838,098 additional small business dollars being pulled away from customer-focused initiatives and instead being spent on a Public Company audit when we do not take custody of customer funds or securities and are non-public companies.

In 2012, there were 783 PCAOB-registered audit firms. By 2016, there were only 478 remaining firms. That is nearly a 40% reduction in the number of audit firms eligible to audit thousands of public companies in America, as well as the approximately 3700 broker-dealers. The scarcity of supply, combined with public companies and the investment industry’s demand, has resulted in disproportionate cost increases for small businesses. The PCAOB Interim Program has, without question, been harmful to both small investment and accounting businesses, with empirical evidence relating to customer protection completely lacking. H.R. 6021 would resolve this issue for small businesses and would result in small businesses being able to deploy that capital toward customer-focused initiatives in the areas of cyber security, technology initiatives to enhance the distribution of market information and market access, job-creation, and more.

Small businesses, by definition, have limited human resources. Our small firm survey asked “roughly how many (wo)man-hours did your staff spend completing your firm’s annual audit pre-PCAOB” (44-hour average) “and post-PCAOB” (82-hour average). Broker-dealers have a mere 60-days from their fiscal year end to the regulatory required filing deadline (ex: 12/31 FY end, 2/28 audited financials filing deadline) and in order for broker-dealers to meet their PCAOB and regulatory obligation most small company staff must work overtime and weekends to compensate for the additional burdens of Public Company audit standards. The weekend/overtime wages add, in aggregate, millions more dollars of expense to the Public Company-like annual audit burden. 

The one-size-fits-all PCAOB audit standards that were designed for significantly more complex companies have been devastating to small businesses around the country. Currently, a 3-person, non-public small business is held to the same standards as Merrill Lynch; this is not right, fair or reasonable. At a time when small firms should be deploying their assets (human and financial) to the benefit and protection of their customers, instead prior statute demands their capital for an audit that does not, in any way, benefit those same investing customers. 

Cyber security and the protection of personal customer identification and account information is one of the single most important areas of exposure for small firms and their customers. This is but one of the areas where small firms would deploy the near-$28Million per year funds (and rising) that are, instead, currently going into the hands of large PCAOB audit firms. Our small firm customers deserve both cyber protection and bespoke technology offerings that provide enhanced market information and access to them. If H.R. 6021 is passed small businesses will be able to deploy resources to these areas, as well as support their local communities and states through the growth of their firms (job-creation).

It has been suggested by some that the PCAOB can exempt classes of broker-dealers from the requirement to use a PCAOB-registered auditor, it is important to note that statement is factually incorrect. Additionally, it has been suggested that any auditor the PCAOB decides to exempt from inspection would not be required to register, again, that is factually incorrect. The SEC, PCAOB and all broker-dealers are bound by statute and the statute says that broker-dealers MUST engage a PCAOB-registered audit firm for purposes of their annual audit. Small non-public, non-custodial broker-dealers are seeking common sense legislative relief from prior statute through the passing of H.R. 6021.

Additionally, it is worth highlighting that the PCAOB’s mission is “investor protection”. The term “investor” as it relates to the PCAOB, refers to individuals who invest in Public Company stock. The companies that will be eligible for the PCAOB exemption contained in H.R. 6021 are all Non-Public Companies that, by definition, do not have Public Company investors. The eligible small non-public companies contemplated in H.R. 6021 do not carry customer funds or securities and are, at all times, subject to required regulatory monthly, quarterly and annual financial reporting obligations. Additionally, the users of the annual audited non-custodial broker dealer financial statements are principally the regulatory bodies NOT “[Public Company] investors”, of which we have none. So any inference that this narrowly-defined exemption (for small businesses that DO NOT carry customer cash or securities and are non-public firms with no public company “investors”) endangers the investing public is simply an inaccurate assessment of our bill.

The small firm community in the brokerage industry supports the mission of our financial regulators and of the PCAOB, as it relates to public companies that sell their stock to the investing public and carrying/custodial broker-dealer firms that take custody of customer funds and securities. Without appropriate (not one size fits all) regulation, the United States would not have efficient capital markets, however this legislative overreach of Dodd-Frank has created unnecessary and devastating costs and burdens for smaller broker-dealers, negatively affected small accounting firms, and further limits the choices our retail customers have as our small companies buckle under the disproportionate weight of audit and compliance costs.

Our economy is powered by small business. Our future job growth depends on small businesses. Our future economic prosperity and competitiveness depends on the ability of our small businesses to innovate and grow into industry leaders. 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. Please support H.R. 6021, the Small Business Audit Correction Act.

Thank you for your attention to this important issue and our narrowly-tailored legislation that, as one consumer advocacy group has said, presents no systemic risk to investors, customers, or the markets. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact Paige Pierce at or (801) 733-9909.
