Course Description

Accounting estimates are an approximation of a monetary amount in the absence of a precise means of measurement. The risks of material misstatement for areas of estimation tend to be higher due to the dependence on future events and the intended actions of management. This module will discuss tips and techniques for gathering sufficient appropriate audit evidence to support conclusions related to accounting estimates.
