Overview

Communications and publications from the IRBA regarding the results of the Inspections Process have, amongst others, highlighted common findings at the engagement file level. From various engagements between SAICA and the IRBA, it is apparent that a considerable number of engagement inspections findings relate to the basics of an audit not being done, not being done properly and/or not being documented properly as to represent sufficient appropriate audit evidence. In this seminar, SAICA has selected certain topics in order to address some of the deficiencies by providing members and their audit staff with a good grasp of the basic auditing concepts involved. The selected topics will be addressed in the context of the requirements of the International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) and the application thereof illustrated by way of examples.
