The 2020 PCAOB budget totals $284.7 million, an increase of approximately 4.0% from its 2019 budget. The accounting support fee totals $270.2 million, approximately 2.8% more than the 2019 accounting support fee, of which $239.7 million will be assessed on public companies and $30.5 million will be assessed on broker-dealers. The accounting support fee approximates the PCAOB’s annual budget, with differences generally attributable to certain timing differences in fee collections and PCAOB expenditures, adjustments to the working capital reserve, and the potential for unspent funds from the prior year budget being carried forward into the accounting support fee calculation.
