Course Description

‘If it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen.’ As an auditor, we understand the importance of documentation. Audit documentation provides the principal support for the independent auditor’s report. Therefore, workpapers must meet professional standards. Anything less could result in peer or regulatory review deficiencies at as a worse case, lawsuits when fraud occurs at a company. The auditor is not responsible for identifying fraud. But the auditor is responsible for planning and performing the audit to obtain reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement due to fraud or error. 

Proper documentation is essential to a high-quality audit, as auditors are required to prepare and maintain documentation to demonstrate that sufficient and appropriate audit evidence was obtained to support the auditor’s opinion. Proper audit documentation and the proper review of that documentation ensure that sufficient audit evidence has been obtained to support the auditor's decisions and opinion. 

It is critical for workpapers to provide a clear understanding of the nature, timing, and extent of procedures applied, the results of those procedures, source of evidence obtained, and conclusions reached. Both audit effectiveness and efficiency are directly impacted by the nature and extent of audit documentation. 

The Online Continuing Education Auditing Webinar covers the following Major Topics:

  • Proper documentation as a means of audit quality
  • Factors impacting the nature and extent of documentation
  • Sample workpaper index and other organization tips
  • Use of audit programs as means of audit documentation
  • Checklist for self-review of workpapers and clearing review notes
  • Multiple exercises on identifying workpaper deficiencies
