Surgent's Ensuring Audit Quality: Performing an Effective Risk Assessment (RAA4)

Description:

Recent auditing standards have emphasized the initial information gathered and important conclusions reached during risk assessment procedures to identify and evaluate risk of material misstatement in a financial statement audit. These important procedures provide the basis for determining how much effort will be invested in evaluating the design and implementation of internal controls. In addition, these procedures provide the rationale for effectively and efficiently designing the nature, timing, and extent of further audit procedures (which includes tests of controls for operating effectiveness and substantive audit procedures). The purpose of this CPE course is to teach auditors on how to utilize a risk-based approach in their engagements to enhance audit quality. Auditors continue to struggle with effective and efficient execution of the Risk Assessment Standards. Common deficiencies include an over-reliance on checklists and inadequate documentation of audit risk assessment, including linkage of audit procedures to the risks they are designed to address. The AICPA Peer Review team continues to see common audit deficiencies relating to risk assessment.
