THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

The  National Practitioners Growth Forum  – Recording
Date: 26th – 29th July 2022
Venue: Virtual
Time: 09.00am-03.30pm
(This is one of the mandatory trainings for Practicing Certificate consideration)

OVERVIEW

The audit practice has experienced tremendous developments arising from the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic among many other social and economic developments. This has necessitated the change of approach and tact in delivering audit and assurance engagements, especially during this period when the world is reeling from the effects of the pandemic.

Even after the disruptive season of the COVID-19 pandemic, audits should continue to comply with the required standards, which may necessitate different and enhanced considerations by auditors in the current circumstances. Auditors may need to consider developing alternative procedures to gather sufficient appropriate audit evidence to support their audit opinion, or to modify the audit opinion.

It is important to note that concerns on audit quality continues to be a key issue that is still drawing critical attention from the public and other stakeholders who rely on audited financial statements to make key business decisions and judgements.

While it is crucial to address these quality considerations, there need to be an element of efficiency and cost optimization in the delivery of all audit engagements.  This is a critical consideration which the audit practitioners must give to their work as they endeavor to deliver the best service to their clients.

The impact of new developments span across the private and public audit landscapes and the complexities arising from the global developments around the profession call for concerted efforts aimed at not only maintaining the quality of the audits undertaken, but equally reassure the public that the audited financial statements can be relied upon. This trust aspect must be maintained at all costs if the audit practice must continue gaining the expected confidence and trust of the public.

It is against this background that the Institute has organized another two-day virtual forum to discuss these critical developments which affect the practitioners in the different categories of practice and the Accountancy Profession at large and seek to address the rising concerns of audit quality while ensuring that efficiency in undertaking the audits is maintained.  To guide the discussion during the Seminar, the following topics of discussion will form the focus of this very important virtual event.
