Course Description

In July 2020, the AICPA Auditing Standards Board (ASB) issued Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 142, Audit Evidence. SAS No. 142 supersedes AU-C section 500, Audit Evidence and amends various other sections of SAS 122, Statements on Auditing Standards: Clarification and Recodification, as amended. SAS No. 142 explains what constitutes audit evidence in an audit of financial statements and sets out attributes of information that are considered by the auditor when evaluating information to be used as audit evidence. Taking these attributes into account assists the auditor in maintaining professional skepticism.

This Online CPE webinar on Auditing discusses the revisions to SAS No. 142 and addresses the evolving nature of transacting business as well as the evolution of audit services. Issues addressed include use of emerging technologies and techniques by both preparers and auditors, the application of professional skepticism, the expanding use of external information sources to provide audit evidence, and more broadly, the relevance and reliability of audit evidence.

Major Topics Covered:

  • Principles of SAS 142.
  • Requirements for identifying new audit evidence under SAS 142.
  • Criteria for additional audit procedures under SAS 142.
  • The acceptability of external information.
  • Conditions and timing for accepting input from specialists.
  • Documentation needs.
  • Disclosure obligations
