About this webinar

From a theoretical perspective the Coronavirus outbreak could be said to have had little impact on the audit process. The regulatory framework and the requirements of International Standards on Auditing are unchanged, and the procedures that auditors are required to perform and the standard of work that is expected are no different than before. In practice though the work that auditors will have to undertake in order to be able to demonstrate compliance with the ISAs will change significantly, and at times present new challenges and considerable difficulty for the auditor. Regulators may be sympathetic to these issues but have stressed the need for the audit process to remain robust and true to the principles outlined in the ISAs.

Common issues and tips

Many of the problems that will be faced will be more practical in nature due to the difficulties operating under the current social distancing restrictions present, with an inability to visit clients and to be able to perform procedures that under normal circumstances would not present any problems. 

Even when the restrictions are lifted though, there will continue to be new challenges for the auditor with many businesses fundamentally changed as a consequence of the Coronavirus outbreak. 

This webinar examines the key technical and practical issues that auditors will need to consider when performing audit engagements and the need to reflect the implications that arise due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

In this webinar will look at impacts on:

  • ISQC 1 and Code of Ethics requirements
  • Planning the audit
  • Fraud
  • Group audits
  • Going concern
  • Audit opinions
  • Where to get more help”
