ITEM 4.01
Changes in registrant’s certifying accountant
 
Effective November 16, 2017, Hein & Associates LLP (“Hein”), the independent registered public accounting firm for Good Times Restaurants Inc. (the “Company”), combined with Moss Adams LLP (“Moss Adams”). As a result of this transaction, on November 16, 2017, Hein resigned as the independent registered public accounting firm for the Company. Concurrent with such resignation, the Company’s audit committee approved the engagement of Moss Adams as the new independent registered public accounting firm for the Company.
 
The audit reports of Hein on the Company’s financial statements for the years ended September 27, 2016 and September 30, 2015 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 two most recent fiscal years ended September 27, 2016 and September 30, 2015 and through the subsequent interim period preceding Hein’s resignation, there were no disagreements between the Company and Hein on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Hein would have caused them to make reference thereto in their reports on the Company’s financial statements for such years.
 
During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015, our Chief Executive Officer and then-present Chief Financial Officer (its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, respectively), determined that our controls were not adequate to ensure that all liabilities related to development costs for restaurants under construction but not yet open as of the end of the fiscal year were recorded in the proper period.  Accordingly, based upon this material weakness, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls were not effective as of the year ended September 30, 2015 as it relates to recording the correct amount of unpaid development costs and their associated liability.  This material weakness was subsequently resolved and for the year ended September 27, 2016 and through the subsequent interim period preceding Hein’s resignation, there were no reportable events within the meaning set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.  The Company’s audit committee discussed this matter with Hein, and the audit committee has authorized Hein to respond fully to the inquiries of Moss Adams concerning this matter.
 
During the two most recent fiscal years ended September 27, 2016 and September 30, 2015 and through the subsequent interim period preceding Moss Adam’s engagement, the Company did not consult with Moss Adams on either (1) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit opinion that may be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and Moss Adams did not provide either a written report or oral advise to the Company that Moss Adams concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (2) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement, as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K, or a reportable event, as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
 
The Company has provided Hein a copy of the disclosures in this Form 8-K and has requested that Hein furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the Company’s statements herein. A copy of the letter dated November 16, 2017 is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.
