Best Practices in Documenting Internal Controls for Risk Assessments


Identification: NOT1902

A study by the AICPA's Peer Review Program found that more than one in 10 firms are not properly assessing risk or linking their assessments to their audit procedures. Of these deficiencies, 40% related to failure to gain an understanding of internal control when identifying the client's risks. Without understanding the nature of the client's controls, auditors can't identify related risks or design appropriate responses. This course will review the best practices in proper documentation of control risks for risk assessment.

  • Recognize factors that should be considered when conducting your audit risk assessment
  • Identify best practices in documenting control risks as part of the audit risk assessment

IRS Audits of Nonprofits from A to Z

Many in not-for-profit accounting leadership are concerned with the potential for an IRS examination or audit. All this talk about "data-driven decision making" and numerous tax law changes has us on edge. What are your organization's chances of getting selected for an IRS audit? What happens if you are selected? How will the IRS contact and communicate with your organization? What is a "correspondence audit?" What if they find errors or problems? What "taxpayer rights" do we have? All this and more will be covered in this session.

  • Distinguish between the different types of audits/examinations the IRS performs
  • Recognize criteria and procedures the IRS utilizes in their "case selection model" including data-driven decision making
  • Identify potential issues on Form 990 that may cause "issues" upon IRS exam
