What you will learn

By the end of this event the attendee should understand:  

    • Improve the quality of your client’s audit file by improving and maintaining audit quality with knowledge of the upcoming IRBA inspections;
    • Better communicate with the audit firm and audit partner;
    • Appreciate the complexity of the audit process;
    • Facilitate the discussion between the client and the audit firm; and
    • Be aware of the contents of the IRBA Inspections Report, including awareness of the 7th Inspection Cycle and the new IRBA 5-year strategy.


Business Accountants often assist clients to prepare for an audit. They do this by preparing the audit file that the audit firm will use to audit the client.

Business Accountants that understand the challenges faced by audit firms when it comes to quality control will be able to assist the audit firm in performing better audits.

IRBA is the regulator of auditors and has released their 2021 Public Inspections Report which reveals recurring quality deficiency faced by audit firms in the 3rd and final year of their 7th Inspections Cycle.

This webinar explains the IRBA findings and how audit firms should improve their practice and quality control processes.  All attest and assurance staff must stay informed about mistakes made by other practices that have been inspected by IRBA, and take measures to prevent the identified deficiencies within their own practice. This includes Independent Reviewers because independent review is regarded as assurance work.

Join our technical experts to review the findings of the report and identify practical measures to safeguard your engagement working papers.

This will assist Business Accountants to prepare better client audit files thereby reducing costs and presenting value to audit firms. It may also assist Business Accountants to perform better Independent Review Engagements as independent review is regarded as assurance work.
