Announcement regarding IAASBs Invitation to Comment Improving the Auditors Report
July, 25th 2012
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE ATTENTION OF THE MEMBERS

International Auditing and Assurance Standards Boards
Invitation to Comment, Improving the Auditors Report

The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB), has recently published an Invitation to Comment titled, Improving the Auditors Report. Through this, IAASB is envisaging important amendments to the format and contents of the auditors report to make it more informative and a valuable document for the stakeholders. Among other things, it is exploring the possibility of the auditors providing greater information on:

  • Matters that are, in the auditors judgment, likely to be most important to users understanding of the audited financial statements or the audit of public interest entities;
  • Auditors conclusion on appropriateness of managements use of going concern assumption;
  • Auditors statement on existence of any material inconsistencies between audited financial statements and other information;

for which it is proposing new sections titled Going Concern, Auditor Commentary and Other Information in the audit report.

In addition it is also exploring the manner in which greater transparency about the audit process can be reflected in the audit report through suggestions such as in case of group audits, the extent of work done by the component auditors vis a vis principal auditor.

IAASB is also exploring if a change in the placement of the opinion paragraph vis a vis auditors / managements responsibility paragraphs in the audit report could enhance the value of the audit report.

Based on the feedback received, IAASB would propose amendments to its reporting standards, particularly, ISA 700.
