Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

 

(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

On August 2, 2023, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Future FinTech Group, Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed Onestop Assurance PAC (“Onestop Assurance”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately.

 

Onestop Assurance’ audit reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2022 and December 31, 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 that the audit reports on the consolidated financial statements of the Company for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 contained an uncertainty about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and in the subsequent interim period through August 1, 2023, there were (i) no disagreements between the Company and Onestop Assurance 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 Onestop Assurance, would have caused Onestop Assurance to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in their reports on the financial statements for such years, and (ii) no “reportable events” as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation  S-K.

 

The Company provided Onestop Assurance with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Report”) prior to the time the Report was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company requested that Onestop Assurance furnish a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the statements made herein as soon as possible. The Company will file the letter from Onestop Assurance as an amendment to this Report within two business days of receipt.

 

(b) Engagement of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

On August 2, 2023, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the engagement of Fortune CPA, Inc. (“Fortune CPA”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. The Audit Committee also approved Fortune CPA to act as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023.

 

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and through August 1, 2023, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted Fortune CPA regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the consolidated financial statements of the Company; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event as described above; and there was neither a written report nor was oral advice provided to the Company by Fortune CPA that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to an accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue.
