Form 8-K for PAYCHEX INC


23-Aug-2013

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


ITEM 4.01 CHANGES IN REGISTRANT'S CERTIFYING ACCOUNTANT.

(a) The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Paychex, Inc. (the "Company") recently completed a competitive process to determine what audit firm would serve as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2014. On August 20, 2013, the Audit Committee approved the engagement of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PwC") as auditors for the Company, effective immediately, and thereby dismissed Ernst &Young LLP ("EY") from that role.

The audit reports of EY on the consolidated financial statements of the Company and subsidiaries as of and for the years ended May 31, 2013 and 2012 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles. During the fiscal years ended May 31, 2013 and 2012, and through August 20, 2013, there were no: (i) disagreements with EY on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to EY's satisfaction, would have caused EY to make reference to the subject matter thereof in its reports for such years; or
(ii) reportable events, as described under Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company provided EY with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested from EY a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission indicating whether it agrees with such disclosures. A copy of EY's letter dated August 23, 2013 is attached as Exhibit 16.1.

(b) During the years ended May 31, 2013 and 2012, and subsequent interim period through August 20, 2013, the Company did not consult with PwC regarding (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 financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that PwC concluded was an important factor to be considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to an accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a "disagreement" or a "reportable event", as such terms are defined in Item
304(a)(1)of Regulation S-K.



ITEM 9.01. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND EXHIBITS.

The following exhibit is filed with this Form 8-K.

Exhibit 16.1: Letter from Ernst & Young LLP, dated August 23, 2013.
