Quality Control - Review of CSQC1 (VO)

Every public practice firm providing assurance engagements is required to comply with the quality control standards as set out in Canadian Standards for Quality Control (“CSQC1”). The course is designed to assist sole practitioners and small firms in understanding the requirements of the standard and how the requirements may be applied in a small firm environment. The structure of the course is based on the CPA Canada Quality Assurance Manual subscription, however the topics and ideas may be integrated into any customized firm template.

Although there have been few changes in the quality control standards for a number of years, practitioners who are new to public practice, new to the provision of assurance engagements or those who are looking for suggestions in updating the firm’s quality control function will find this course useful.

Requirements specific to firms providing services to publicly accountable entities will not be covered.

Practitioners who: are new to public practice and have not yet established the firm’s quality control manual; are new to the provision of assurance services and have not yet implemented a firm quality control manual; or have not updated their firm’s quality control manual for a number of years.

By the end of this course, participants will have a stronger understanding of:

  • integration of quality control policies and procedures into firm and file documentation
  • requirement for engagement quality control reviews
  • ongoing (annual) monitoring: who, what, when, how and reporting
  • completed file (cyclical) monitoring: who, what, when, how and reporting
  • annual update of the firm’s Quality Assurance Manual (QAM)
  • common quality control deficiencies in small firms

Participants should be familiar with CSQC1.
