  Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

 

On September 14, 2021, Benjamin & Ko (“Benjamin”) was appointed as the new independent registered public accounting firm for Datasea Inc. (the “Company”). Prior to engaging Benjamin on September 14, 2021, the Company has not consulted Benjamin regarding the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, completed or proposed, the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements or a reportable event, nor did the Company consult with Benjamin regarding any disagreements with the Company’s prior auditor on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope of procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of the prior auditor, would have caused it to make a reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its reports.

Simultaneously with the appointment of Benjamin, on September 14, 2021, Prager Metis CPAs, LLC (“Prager”) was terminated as the independent registered public accounting firm for the Company. The decision to change audit firms from Prager to Benjamin was approved by the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors.

Since October 19, 2020, the date on which Prager was engaged and through September 14, 2021, there were no disagreements with Prager on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to Prager’s satisfaction, would have caused Prager to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in its reports on the Company’s financial statements.

During the period from October 19, 2020 through September 14, 2021, there were no reportable events of the type described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company provided Prager with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and requested that Prager furnish a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the statements made above. Attached as Exhibit 16.1 hereto is a copy of Prager’s letter to the SEC, dated September 17, 2021.
