Transactions not at arm's length
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
By the end of this event the attendee will:
- Understand the implications of transactions that are not at arm’s length:
- When will the auditor apply ISA 550 (Related parties);
- How the auditor will apply risk assessment procedures;
- Be aware of possible indicators of transactions that are not at arm’s length;
- Be aware of questions that the auditor will consider to determine the implications of transactions that are not at arm’s length; and
- Be aware of the illustrative procedures which may be used for risk assessment and further procedures for transactions with the entity that might not be at arm’s length.
Transactions that are not at arm’s length may pose risks in an audit of the financial statements because if such transactions are not identified by management and/or the auditor it could give rise to risks that are not addressed in the audit, and ultimately in misstatements in the financial statements.
The perpetration of fraud involving transactions that are not arm’s length has become more prevalent at entities in South Africa over the past few years. The IRBA have issued a Staff Audit Practice Alert to provide auditors with guidance regarding the auditor’s considerations with respect to transactions that are not at arm’s length.
During this webinar we will focus mainly on identifying transactions that are not at arm’s length, but we will also highlight some basics on parties that are related.
