AICPA releases first CIRA audit and accounting guide.

A new audit and accounting guide, Common Interest Realty Associations, gives accounting guidance for the first time on condominiums, cooperatives, time-share associations and planned unit developments, commonly called CIRAs. The guide illustrates the form and content of CIRA financial statements and the informative disclosures related to the statements. It also provides independent accountants and auditors with guidance and information disclosures on compilations, reviews and audits of CIRAs.

Guidelines outlining information that must be disclosed regarding funding of future major repairs and replacements of common property also are discussed. In addition, the guide requires unaudited supplementary information about estimated costs of such repairs and replacements to be included in the financial statements.

The guide is available at $18 per copy for members ($22.50 for non-members), plus shipping and handling. To order, call the AICPA order department at (800) 334-6961 or (800) 248-0445 (in New York State). Mention product number 012481.
