New Auditor’s report: Two SA companies out of starting blocks
SAICA’s interview with early adopter of the new and revised auditor reporting standards (25 September 2015)
The new and revised auditor reporting standards of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) are effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after 15 December 2016, although early adoption is permitted. The audit firm Deloitte has early adopted the new and revised auditor reporting standards in respect of two of its listed clients who released their audited results in September 2015, namely Imperial Holdings Limited and Attacq Limited. SAICA senior executive for Assurance and Practice, Willie Botha, interviewed Zuleka Jasper (audit engagement partner at Deloitte) and Melt Hamman (Chief Financial Officer of Attacq Limited) in order to gain some insight into their experience of the process on the path to a new auditor’s report.
