SOC 1 Reports

What is a SOC 1 report?

SOC 1 Reports on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to User Entities’ Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. SOC 1 reports are examination engagements performed by a service auditor (CPA) in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 18 (AT-C, Section 320), Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization, to report on controls at a service organization that are likely to be relevant to an audit of a user entity’s financial statements. Use of a SOC 1 report is restricted to existing user entities (not potential customers) and their auditors. There are two types of SOC 1 reports:

Type 1 – A report on management’s description of the service organization’s system and the suitability of the design of the controls;

Type 2 – A report on management’s description of the service organization’s system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls.
