THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

Essential Issues in Audit: A Practical Approach

Date: 15th – 16th February, 2018

Venue: PrideInn Hotel, Haile Sellasie Rd, Mombasa

Brief

The field of audit continues to evolve, as it should, in keeping up with the dynamic business world. The delivery of high calibre audits that inspire the confidence of all stakeholders should be the objective of every auditor. Fundamental to meeting this goal is auditor independence and integrity. However, those qualities are hardly enough to assure end users. Professional competence also has to be demonstrated and this is evident from the International Education Standard 8 on Professional Competence for Engagement Partners Responsible for Audits of Financial Statements (revised).

Another emerging trend in the profession is the increasing employ of technology. Nascent softwares and applications are finding their way into accounting practices and auditors must be keen to keep up with them. In seeking to widen the market, the modern day audit firm has also fashioned non-audit professional services to offer audit clients such as risk advisory and human resource consultancy.

These numerous changes present both challenges and opportunities for practitioners. With this in mind, ICPAK has organized the Essential Issues in Audit Workshop to provide an educative platform that will enable auditors to thrive in the prevailing circumstances.

Topics to be covered:

  •  The Audit Process

Obtaining Audit Evidence – Relevant Tests with Sample Data

Internal Control Assessment and Risk Profiling

  • Practical Implications of Quality Controls

Setting Up Quality Controls in a Practise

Training and Supervision of Staff for Quality Assurance

  • ICT in Audit

Auditing Mobile Money and Electronic Transactions – Integration Softwares, Reliability of Security Features

ERP Systems

Cloud Computing

  • Developments in Audit

Professional Competence for Engagement Partners Responsible for Audits of Financial Statements

Practice Statements on Materiality Judgments

  • The Rise of Professional Advisory services – Is this a growth frontier to be considered?

 Target Audience

Associate  members,  internal  &  external  auditors, accountants,  staff  working  in  audit  firms, members in practice, aspiring audit practitioners
