At the end of the session, the participants will be capable of designing a thorough audit process, suitable to the size and the nature of a business. The seminar will also equip them with skills to prepare an audit documentation that comprehensively discusses:
(a) The nature, timing and extent of the audit procedures performed to comply with GAAS and applicable legal and regulatory requirements;
(b) The results of the audit procedures performed, and the audit evidence obtained; and (c) Significant matters that arose during the audit, the conclusions reached thereon, and significant professional judgments made in reaching those conclusions.
