Do you require a practice run of the audit process of attorney trust accounts but don't have a software license for a recognised methodology? Do you have audit staff that need exposure to the audit of an attorney’s trust accounts? Do you want to ensure that you’ve covered all the attorney legislation requirements as part of your audit scope, before issuing the audit report on such a high risk engagement? Are you aware of IRBA's NEW 2019 Revised Guide and it's effect on attorney audits? Then we have a training solution for you. Attorneys’ Trust Account engagements are high risk and thereby require precision and sound knowledge of the legislation to avoid Rule infringement going unnoticed. They key to a successful Attorneys’ Trust Accounts engagement is understanding what makes it unique, being familiar with the new Legal Practitioners Council Rules that govern the attorney profession upon which the audit opinion is based and acquainting one’s self with the new legislation being the Legal Practice Act, that took effect on 1 November 2018 and understanding it’s effect on the audit process.

The objective of this course is to: 1. Simplify all applicable legislation including the Legal Practice Act, Legal Practitioners Council Rules, assurance standard ISAE 3000 and Revised IRBA Guide for Engagements on Attorneys’ Trust Accounts. 2. Clarify how trust accounting differs from business-side accounting 3. Increase the auditor's ability to recognise Rule infringements 4. Address the entire audit process from planning, to execution, all the way through to finalisation of the audit using Microsoft Excel
