Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Asta Funding, Inc. (the "Company") approved the dismissal of Grant Thornton LLP ("Grant Thornton") as the Company's Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm and the engagement of WeiserMazars LLP ("WeiserMazars") as the Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm to audit the Company's consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013 and review of each of the interim periods in the fiscal year then ended. The dismissal of Grant Thornton and the engagement of WeiserMazars were each effective on April 9, 2013.

During the Company's two most recent fiscal years ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, and the subsequent interim period through April 9, 2013, there were no disagreements between the Company and Grant Thornton concerning any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure which disagreements, if not resolved to Grant Thornton's satisfaction, would have caused Grant Thornton to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with their reports. In addition, during the Company's two most recent fiscal years ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, and the subsequent interim period through April 8, 2013, there were no reportable events as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The audit reports of Grant Thornton on the consolidated financial statements of the Company as of and for the years ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were such reports qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the Company's two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period to April 9, 2013, neither the Company, nor anyone on its behalf, consulted with WeiserMazars regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to any completed or proposed transaction or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's consolidated financial statements, or
(ii) any of the other matters specified in Items 304(a)(1)(iv) or (v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company provided Grant Thornton with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested from Grant Thornton a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether Grant Thornton agrees with the statements made by the Company in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of Grant Thornton's letter dated April 15, 2013 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this report.
