Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

 

Dismissal of Principal Independent Accountant

 

On January 24, 2022, DarkPulse, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), informed Boyle CPA, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm (“Boyle”), of the Company’s decision (approved by the Board of Directors) to dismiss Boyle as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm effective as of January 24, 2022. Boyle was not dismissed for any cause.

 

None of the reports of Boyle, on the Company's financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2020 or 2019 contained an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, or was qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, other than all such reports contained statements indicating there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

There were no disagreements between the Company and Boyle, for the most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and any subsequent interim period through January 24, 2022 (date of dismissal) on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Boyle, would have caused them to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report.

 

The Company provided Boyle with a copy of the disclosures in this Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Form 8-K”) prior to filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). A copy of Boyle's letter dated January 28, 2022 to the SEC, stating whether it agrees with the statements made in this report, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

 

Engagement of New Principal Independent Accountant

 

On January 24, 2022, the Company engaged Urish Popeck & Co., LLC (“Urish”) as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years, and any subsequent interim period prior to engaging Urish, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted Urish regarding either: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction regarding the Company, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements; or (ii) any matter regarding the Company that was either the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event.
