(a) Dismissal of Previous Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On May 11, 2018 (the “Effective Date”), UBL Interactive, Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed Thayer O’Neal Company, LLC (“Thayer”) as the independent registered public accounting firm effective immediately. The decision to dismiss Thayer was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”).
The reports of Thayer on the Company’s financial statements for the two most recent fiscal years did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
During the two most recent fiscal years and through the Effective Date, there were (i) no disagreements between the Company and Thayer on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreement, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Thayer, would have caused Thayer to make reference thereto in their reports on the consolidated 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 Thayer with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested that Thayer furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not Thayer agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter, dated May 17, 2018, is attached as Exhibit 16.1.
(b) Engagement of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On May 11, 2018, the Board of the Company appointed ZH CPA LLP (“ZH”) as its new independent registered public accounting firm for the year ended September 30, 2018.
Except as disclosed herein, during the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and in the subsequent interim period through the Effective Date, the Company has not consulted with ZH regarding either (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 Company’s consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that ZH concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
