Course Description

Auditors have a duty to express their view as to whether the company’s financial statements present fairly the financial condition of the company and are therefore free of any material misstatements. On the reliability of such a view, many stake holders take important business decisions. For instance, investors and lenders rely on the opinion of an independent outside auditor to make their economic decisions to invest or lend their money. 

Realizing the importance of audit, regulators, and many legislative bodies apply strict controls on audit procedures. However, this can be a risk-laden area for compliance professionals due to the ongoing legal requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley and other Acts. Although there are well-established procedures for proceeding with an audit, some may tend to be especially risky and should be replaced by those that have proven more effective and more efficient. 

This online webinar covers the following major topics that provide information and guidance as to how this can be efficiently applied and ensured.
