AQA & Compliance Seminar (Mandatory Training) – Recording
Date: 20th to 21st December 2022
(This is one of the mandatory trainings for Practicing Certificate consideration)
High-quality performance by professional accountants benefits the economy and society by users of audited financial statements placing a lot of reliance on the information contained in the financial reports for purposes of decision making. The need for high-quality, accurate, and reliable financial reports continues to be of great relevance all the time. The Institute aims at ensuring that the accuracy of these reports is maintained for all the sectors of the economy to enable enhanced confidence of the different categories of users.
In compliance with the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) Statements of Membership Obligations (SMOs), the Institute undertakes its regulatory mandate and oversight of the audit firms in the Kenyan market to ensure adherence to audit quality requirements by the firms which it regulates. However, the audit practice continues to face challenges arising from either the expectation gap or the perception about quality of audit work. It is against this background that the Institute has organized a two day Audit Quality Assurance workshop to promote awareness and understanding of the ISAs and the IAASB newly released series of ISA modules. The workshop will cover the following topical areas;
- New and Upcoming Standards; IFRS & ISAs
