Caseware RCT offers the ability to customize sign-off schemes. Custom sign-off schemes are the applicable combination of required preparer and reviewer roles for a specific document or group of documents.

RCT has 4 signoff schemes:

  • Preparer
  • Preparer and Reviewer - default
  • Preparer, Reviewer and Partner
