Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.


Resignation of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm


On December 21, 2023, WithumSmith+Brown, PC (“Withum”) resigned as the independent registered public accounting firm of PARTS iD, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”). Withum had served as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm since 2020.


Withum’s audit reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except for Withum’s report for the year ended December 31, 2022, which contained an explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.


During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 and the subsequent interim period through December 21, 2023: (1) there were no “disagreements” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) with Withum on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Withum, would have caused Withum to make reference to the subject matter of such disagreements in connection with its reports on the consolidated financial statements for such periods and (2) there were no “reportable events” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K), except for the disclosure of the following material weakness in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as disclosed in Part I, Item 4 of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023: Management has identified that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is ineffective with respect to its financial closing process as it relates to the accounting for complex debt and equity transactions. This reportable event was discussed among the Company’s management, the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors and Withum. Withum has been authorized by the Company to respond fully to the successor accountant.


The Company provided Withum with a copy of this report prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and requested that Withum furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether Withum agrees with the statements made by the Company in this report and, if not, stating the respects, if any, in which Withum does not agree with such statements. A copy of the letter from Withum is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 16.1.
