INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
AUDIT QUALITY ASSURANCE WORKSHOP
VENUE: NAKURU: CENTRAL RIFT BRANCH
DATE: 6TH – 7TH MARCH 2018
Audit quality encompasses the key elements that create an environment which maximizes the likelihood that quality audits are performed on a consistent basis. The objective of an audit of financial statements is for the auditor to form an opinion on the financial statements based on having obtained sufficient appropriate audit evidence about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement and to report in accordance with the auditor’s findings.

The course is aimed at reminding members of their primary objective to establish an environment that promotes quality audits while also ensuring that they remain competent to address changes in the environment which requires dynamism when auditing. It is also expected that the course will discuss the need for a convergence between stakeholders to influence quality of audits and shall include the role of ICPAK in ensuring compliance through quality reviews.
