Audit: what good looks like

Speaker: John Selwood, Independent Training Consultant

Schedule: 16 Jun 2021 12:45 - 01:25 BST


ICAEW is striving to help auditors improve audit quality. In this session, independent trainer John Selwood will feed back on the "What good looks like” project which is being undertaken with ICAEW's Quality Assurance Department and member audit firms. The project aims to produce practical case studies demonstrating how auditors should approach real world audit problems.

The first part of the project focuses on auditing going concern, including:

  • the role of management in the going concern review;
  • evaluating audit evidence;
  • audit documentation; and
  • shareholder/group support.
