I utilize another company to handle a type of service necessary for the operation of my licensed entity. We do not have a written agreement or contract. Do I still need to report this on P8 Schedule of Outsourced Services?

Yes.  Procedure 8 requires the licensee to report all agreements "by any name" that provide out-sourced management or any other type services necessary for the operation of the licensee. For the purposes of this procedure, outsourced services is the business practice of hiring a party outside a company to perform services and create goods that traditionally were performed in-house by the company's own employees and staff (e.g. consulting services, human resource management, facilities management, supply chain management, accounting, customer support and service, marketing, security, etc. but does not include an agreement for the rental of real property under a bona fide lease paid on a monthly or yearly basis.)  If there is no written agreement or contract, the CPA will utilize invoices or any other written documentation to report the agreement to provide services in Part 1 of Procedure 8.  Actual disbursements for those services will be reported in Part 2 of Procedure 8 according to the Procedure 8 selection of sample size instructions.
