Course Description

Sometimes it is a little difficult to keep up with the amendments in auditing standards issued by the Accounting Standards Board.

The AICPA Auditing Standards Board (ASB) issued two new Statements on Auditing Standards (SAS) that focus on audit evidence and accounting estimates: SAS No. 142, Audit Evidence, and SAS No. 143, Auditing Accounting Estimates and Related Disclosures. These new standards will impact both management and the auditor, as SAS No. 142 relates to the type, extent, and quality of support the auditor will be requesting as audit evidence, while SAS No. 143 relates to the approach the auditor will take in auditing accounting estimates in an increasingly uncertain economic period.

In this CPE course we will review new pronouncements from the AICPA’s Auditing Standards Board (ASB). This CPE webinar will inform participants of the latest issues from the ASB and the AICPA including implementation issues with new effective dates. New and revised audit standards, attestation standards, and other new pronouncements about auditing will be discussed. The impact of the Corona Virus and the revised auditing standards resulting from COVID-19 will be examined for current application. Any newly released auditing issues will be visited. In this CPE course we’ve also looked at the major audit issues related to SAS 141, SAS 142, and SAS 143.

We’re are going to give you an overview of the latest important changes by covering the following Major Topics:

  • SAS 141 - Amendment to the effective dates of SAS nos. 134–140.
