Internal controls are the only thing that can prevent errors or fraud in financial statements. Do we sufficiently address them during an audit? The purpose of this course is to take delegates through the audit process and to discuss in detail every requirement that is listed in the auditing standards that relates to internal controls. From obtaining an understanding, to testing and reporting on deficiencies, controls are of the utmost importance in an audit. This course offers a comprehensive review of the auditor’s obligation toward internal controls, from the requirements listed in the international standards on auditing through to the real-world issues faced during external audits. Furthermore this course will cover the documentation requirements relating to an audit engagement, including the elements to be included in the working papers.
