Session Topic

Effectively auditing related-party transactions and disclosures

Related-party relationships and transactions may give rise to higher risks of material misstatement of the financial statements than transactions with others.  Related parties may operate through an extensive and complex range of relationships and structures, information systems may be ineffective at identifying them, transactions may not be conducted under normal market terms and conditions, and financial-reporting disclosures may be obscure and incomplete.

This session will focus on:

  • The auditor’s responsibilities
  • Undertaking risk-assessment procedures
  • Determining the appropriate audit response
  • Evaluating the accounting and disclosure of related-party transactions and balances
  • Client communications, and
  • Audit documentation.
