Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
On January 14, 2013, China Education Alliance,
Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed Baker Tilly Hong Kong (“Baker Tilly”) as its independent registered public
accounting firm and appointed Albert Wong & Co. (“Albert Wong”) as its new independent registered public accounting
firm. The decision to appoint Albert Wong as the new independent registered public accounting firm was approved by the Audit Committee
and the Board of Directors of the Company on January 14, 2013.
The report of Baker Tilly on our
financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 contained no adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and
was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. Baker Tilly did not issue any
report on our financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.
During the two most recent fiscal years
and through the date of this report, the Company has had no disagreements with Baker Tilly on any matter of accounting principles
or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction
of Baker Tilly, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of such disagreements in its report on the Company’s
financial statements for such periods.
During the two most recent fiscal years
and through the date of this report, there have been no reportable events as defined under Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K
adopted by the SEC.
The Company provided Baker Tilly with a
copy of this disclosure before its filing with the SEC. The Company requested that Baker Tilly provide the Company with a letter
addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements, and the Company received a letter from Baker Tilly
stating that it agrees with the above statements. A copy of this letter is filed as an exhibit to this report and is
incorporated herein by reference.
New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The Audit Committee and the Board of Directors
of the Company appointed Albert Wong as the new independent registered public accounting firm effective as of January 14, 2013.
During the two most recent fiscal years and through the date of its engagement, the Company did not consult with Albert Wong regarding
either (1) 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, or (2) any matter that was either the subject of a
disagreement (as defined in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(iv)) or a reportable event (as described in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(v)).
Prior to engaging Albert Wong, Albert Wong
did not provide the Company with either written or oral advice that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching
a decision to change its independent registered public accounting firm from Baker Tilly to Albert Wong.
