When approaching an audit, auditors need to perform thorough pre-engagement and planning procedures to identify and assess risks. These procedures are normally supervised and reviewed by more experienced audit team members who need to be aware of the minimum procedures, and those appropriate to the circumstances of the client.

It is critical that all the required areas be considered and properly documented to support the determined risk assessment and consequent audit approach. Likewise, once the fieldwork is completed, there are several crucial steps to follow to finalise the audit file, and ensure that there is sufficient appropriate audit evidence to support the conclusions reached and the audit report to be issued.

A thorough understanding of the relevant pre-engagement, planning and finalisation requirements is needed to produce an appropriate risk assessment and audit approach, and a well-supported audit report. During this interactive training session, we will discuss practical examples and solutions to common challenges.
