Session Topic

Planning the 2021 audit

Good planning is the bedrock of a good audit.  Every reporting season has its own unique audit risks and challenges.  The prior-year audit plan should not be simply rolled-over – audit risks change with business and regulatory environments.  This session will focus on new audit challenges and how to handle them.

The session will:

  • Explain the fundamentals of audit planning and risk assessments and, in particular, the revised requirements of ASA 540 Auditing Accounting Estimates and Related Disclosures
  • Emphasise continuing audit risks and identify new ones (for example, non-compliance with laws and regulations, new accounting standards, regulators’ focus) that should be considered for 2021
  • Identify areas of audit planning where auditors should do better, and
  • Conclude with tips on effective audit planning.
