Developed with the needs of professional accountants working in public practice in mind, this seminar provides a solid foundation in the practical application of the Canadian Auditing Standards (CAS) to audit engagements. Participants are given an opportunity to build on their understanding of the standards, with an emphasis on areas identified as common pitfalls in national practice inspection findings. Using a case study approach, participants practice applying the standards to a set of client-specific facts. The case study is based on the audit of a moderately complex for-profit private company. Participants will also explore the key elements of documenting an engagement working paper file including, planning, engagement execution, and reporting.
