(Established under the Accountants Act, Laws of Kenya)
The 4th External Audit Practitioners Forum- (Mandatory Training)
Date: 13th – 14th April 2022
Venue: Virtual
Time: 09.00am-03.30pm
(This is one of the mandatory trainings for Practicing Certificate consideration)


The evolving regulatory and technological advancements have immensely impacted the audit practice over the last couple of years. This happened even as the field of audit experienced tremendous developments, including the effects arising from the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the pandemic period, it was expected that audits should continue to comply with the required standards, which may necessitate different and enhanced considerations by auditors in the pandemic circumstances. Auditors were required 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 also continue 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.

The impact of various 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 a two-day virtual forum to discuss these critical developments which affect the audit practice and accountancy profession and seek to address the ensuing concerns of audit quality during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

To guide the discussion during the Seminar, the following topics of discussion will form the focus of this very important virtual event.

i) Developments in accounting and auditing standards and the impact on audit quality management – ISQM 1 & 2, ISA 220.

ii) Auditing challenges and opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Recent developments in the Audit Practice; Case studies and lessons to be learned

Focus on the quality aspects of ISQM 1 & 2 and implications on the audit practice in Kenya

  1. The new auditor report signing and other regulatory requirements impacting the profession.
  2. Independence and Governance issues – A critical focus on practitioners and possible way-out regarding Going Concern considerations.
  3. Key findings of the Audit Quality Reviews – Major concerns and practical responses to the issues.
  • Leveraging technology to deliver required efficiencies and quality in audit assignments.
