Item 4.01Change in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.


(a) Former Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm


On April 1, 2021, Beam Global (the "Company") dismissed Salberg & Company, P.A. (“Salberg”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the decision to dismiss Salberg. The Company has authorized Salberg to respond fully to the inquiries of the successor auditors.


During the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2020, and the subsequent interim periods through March 31, 2021, there were no: (1) disagreements with Salberg on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if not resolved to their satisfaction would have caused them to make reference in connection with their opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement, or (2) reportable events (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).


The audit reports of Salberg on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.


The Company provided Salberg with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested Salberg to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above disclosures. A copy of the letter furnished pursuant to that request is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


(b) New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm


On April 1, 2021, the Audit Committee appointed RSM US LLP (“RSM”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and during all subsequent interim periods through March 31, 2021, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted with RSM 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 in each case where a written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that RSM concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a “disagreement” with its former auditors within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions or a “reportable event” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) Regulation S-K.
