Jul 24, 2013 7:30am ‐ Jul 24, 2013 3:10pm

Credits: None available.


Through a process of clarification, convergence, reformatting, application material, appendices, and exhibits, the Auditing Standards Board issued the Clarified Auditing Standards. These Clarified Standards supersede all previously issued Statements on Auditing Standards, containing changes you need to know.

Every auditor is required to read, understand, and apply all of the Clarified Auditing Standards affecting their audit practice. This course takes the auditor through the clarified auditing standards by highlighting those changes every auditor needs to know. The course provides explanations, examples, and discussions on key issues, identifies areas that auditors and client management need to understand, and provides practical advice for understanding the explicit new requirements brought about by the changes.
