Professional audit firms face a constant deluge of regulatory changes which they need to keep abreast of; this area of a firm’s work is also highly regulated, so it's crucial that auditors keep informed of feedback from professional bodies based on the regulatory visits that they undertake.

The half-day seminar will highlight all the key recent areas of regulatory change and point auditors towards the steps that they need to take to ensure compliance with the regulations.

What you will learn

After attending the seminar you will be able to:

  • Understand changes to audit regulations and good practice and be able to implement these changes in the audits that you complete;
  • Prepare effectively for a compliance visit from your regulatory body; and
  • Produce high-quality audit files and working papers that are compliant with the Financial Reporting Council’s International Standards on Auditing (ISAs).

Who should attend the seminar?

  • Partners, managers and staff in audit firms who undertake statutory audits.

International Standard on Auditing apply in the UK and the Republic of Ireland so the webinar’s content will be relevant for auditors acting in both jurisdictions.
