Webinar (26 March) – Have your say on the future of the audit evidence standard

The AUASB in conjunction with the NZAuASB, CAANZ and CPA Australia are presenting an interactive webinar to discuss the IAASB’s proposed scope for revising ISA 500 Audit Evidence. The webinar will explore:
- The 15 key challenges identified by the IAASB in applying the audit evidence standard
- Which of the challenges cause the most difficulty in practice
- What actions stakeholders would like to see to address those challenges.
Your responses during the webinar will directly influence the IAASB’s audit evidence revisions.

ASA/ISA(NZ) 500 has been in use for more than 10 years. The world has rapidly evolved over that time with significant changes in technology and the types of information sources used by auditors.  Over the years, stakeholders have raised with the IAASB a number of challenges with applying ISA 500 which the IAASB have summarised as 15 key challenges.

The IAASB are seeking feedback from each jurisdiction to scope their ISA 500 project.
This webinar will focus on:
- identifying which of the 15 key challenges create the most difficulties in practice;
- identifying any fundamental issues not covered by the challenges; and
- how each of the challenges could be addressed. 

When: 26 March 2020 between 2.00 - 3.00pm
