Reporting Engagements

Guidance for Business Accountants in Practice (SA) on how to perform reporting engagements as accountants and accounting officers. April 2020


By the end of this webinar the participant should:

  • Understand the various rules applicable to reporting engagements.
  • Understand the different types of engagements and when they should be applied.
  • Understand the risks and responsibilities associated with reporting engagements.


The three distinct types of reporting engagements that accountants can perform are guided by specific framework, standards as well as legislation.

ISRS 4410, ISRS 4400 and ISRE 2400 give specific guidance on compilations, agreed-upon procedure engagements and independent reviews respectively. Various acts such as the Close Corporations Act, 1984, Companies Act, 2008, Sectional Titles Schemes Management Act, 2011, and South African Schools Act, 1996; have provisions that need to be adhered to during the performance of reporting engagements.
