Leverages a deep understanding of audit and risk advisory services and stakeholder needs to deliver high quality engagements

Become experts in risk assessments and audit responses

Audit professionals are required to obtain an understanding of the entity and its environment, including the entity’s internal control.

This is a continuous dynamic process of gathering, updating and analysing information throughout the audit.
Audit professionals are also required to have knowledge of relevant accounting standards applicable to the entity.
Auditors are required to perform risk assessment procedures to provide a basis for the identification and assessments of the risks of material misstatement
Integrate engagement teams and manage referred work

Involving internal specialists early and often in audits leads to cohesive, well integrated engagement teams.

As auditors we have a responsibility to understand the scope of work performed by the experts and specialists, supervise their procedures, review their working papers and understand the conclusions that they reach.
Supervision, communication and review in relation to the work performed by component auditors are important activities to determine appropriate identification and response to assessed risks of material misstatement to the group financial statements and, more broadly, adherence to the DTTL Audit Approach Manual
