Description

There are a number of non-audit services available for SMEs, including review, compilation, other assurance, and engagements to perform agreed-upon procedures.

Clients may not need an audit but may find that an Agreed-upon procedures (AUP) engagement is a very useful and valuable non-audit service which is available for SMEs.  On the practitioners side, they can use AUPs to successfully grow their practices by tapping into the global need for increased accountability of both financial and non-financial information, e.g. around funding, grants, and for compliance purposes. 

ISRS 4400 (Revised), Agreed-Upon Procedures Engagements, has been revised to respond to the growing demand for these engagements, particularly in relation to the need for increased accountability around funding and grants.  

A broad range of stakeholders, such as regulators, funding bodies and creditors, use agreed-upon procedures reports for a variety of reasons. The revised requirements and application material promote consistency in the performance of agreed-upon procedures engagements, and include a number of enhancements. 

During this webinar we will highlight key changes, including the exercise of professional judgement, compliance with independence requirements, engagement acceptance and continuance considerations, using the work of an expert, and greater clarity and transparency in the agreed-upon procedures report.
