Misstatements in the financial statements can arise from fraud or error. The distinguishing factor between fraud and error is whether the underlying action that results in the misstatement is intentional or unintentional. As fraud is intentional and involves schemes designed to hide misstatement, the risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than the risk of not detecting one resulting from error. The courses will help participants will identify the auditor’s responsibilities related to fraud and apply the standards when designing and performing procedures for audit engagements.
