The global pandemic that is COVID 19 has had far reaching consequences on us all, whether in our personal or professional capacity. The auditing profession has felt the impact harder than others. Not only do we need to change the way we perform our services, we also have to take into account the effect of the pandemic on our clients and the resulting effect on risk assessment and audit procedures to be performed. Join us in this session as we unpack the impact of COVID 19 on our audit files and the way we perform the audit.
