Session Topic

Going concern financial reporting and auditing

The number of preparers and auditors who fail to understand the financial and auditing requirements of ‘going concern’ is surprising. Enhanced audit-reporting standards, which operate for 30 June 2017 audits, have changed how going matters are addressed.
This session will:

  • Describe the going-concern requirements of AASB 101 Presentation of Financial Statements as well related requirements in other AASBs
  • Review the auditing rules in ASA 570 Going Concern, and
  • Address how going issues are now to be reported under the suite of enhanced audit-reporting standards (KAM, modified opinion or emphasis of matter).
