Item 4.01 Change in Registrants Certifying Accountant
On December 2, 2019 (the “Resignation Date”), Liggett & Webb P.A. (the “Former Auditor”) advised Boston Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) that it resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
During the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 and through the Resignation Date, the Company has not had any disagreements with the Former Auditor on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the Former Auditor’s satisfaction, would have caused them to make reference thereto in their reports on the Company’s financial statements for such years.
The report of the Former Auditor on the Company’s financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, and such report was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principle, except that the report contained a paragraph stating there was substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The Company has requested that our Former Auditor furnish us with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of this letter is attached hereto to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 16.1.
