Course Description

During 2019 and 2020, the Auditing Standards Board issued eight new auditing standards SAS 134 – SAS 141.  These new standards are considered a suite of standards recommended by the ASB to be implemented concurrently. The standards are designed to enhance the relevance and transparency of the auditor’s report.  An objective is to provide financial statement users with more meaningful information about the audit.  There are many changes to the new auditor’s report.  The first half of the course discusses the four sections of SAS 134 which provide the foundation for the other changes in SAS 135 – 141.  These four 134 sections are:

  • Forming an Opinion and Reporting on Financial Statements Proposed SAS
  • Communicating Key Audit Matters in the Independent Auditor’s Report
  • Modifications to the Opinion in the Independent Auditor’s Report
  • Emphasis-of-Matter Paragraphs and Other-Matter Paragraphs in the Independent Auditor’s Report

The course then presents the procedures to implement and the related changes to the auditor’s reports included in the other standards for topics such as: The Auditor’s Communication With Those Charged With Governance, Related Parties, Consideration of Fraud in a Financial Statement Audit. Forming an Opinion/Reporting on Financial Statements of Employee Benefit Plans Subject to ERISA, The Auditor’s Responsibilities Relating to Other Information included in annual reports, Amendments to the Description of the Concept of Materiality.  Illustrations of the content of various auditor reports are included.  Join Rod Redding for this overview course of these important changes coming to the auditor’s report.
