In May, the SEC alleged that Ernst and Young violated its duty to remain independent from companies it audits by jointly developing and marketing software with client PeopleSoft Inc.

 Houston's Clear Thinkers: May 2004 Archives   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The investigation of Ernst reflects the continuation of the Justice Department's continued effort to crack down on tax evaders and their professional advisers, including accounting firms, law firms and financial institutions.
The criminal investigation of Ernst is somewhat surprising in that Ernst last summer reached a civil settlement -- which included payment of a $15 million penalty -- with the IRS to resolve allegations that it failed to register its tax-shelter strategies with the government and maintain lists of investors who participated in them.
Ernst disbanded the division that had been involved in developing and marketing its most aggressive tax shelters and, as part of the IRS settlement, Ernst also instituted organizational changes aimed at ensuring future compliance with federal and state tax laws.

The SEC said Ernst and Young was auditing PeopleSoft's books from 1993 through 2000--the same time it was developing and marketing a software product in tandem with the company.
Since PeopleSoft has not collapsed, the current charges against Ernst and Young, even if proved, are unlikely to be a calamity for the firm, which has joined the other top accountants in picking up clients and partners of Andersen's during that firm's demise.
The new charges against Ernst and Young are reminiscent of Enron in that they focus on auditor independence.
