Description

Working papers are the building blocks of an audit. If it's not in the working papers, audit quality may suffer, as the manager and partner might not know about it or its ramifications may not be fully considered. Understand the professional standards regarding working paper documentation. Make this course part of the firm's quality control system. Learn the fundamentals of working paper preparation - form and content - to make sure audit considerations, work performed, and conclusions reached are properly documented. You will also explore examples which show field work supervisors what factors to consider and what steps to follow when reviewing working papers. In addition, typical working paper deficiencies are explained to help minimize potential liability.
