Accounting Fraud & Failures - New Standards, Company Director Liability & More
Fraud is among one of many issues which auditors are criticised over when it comes to the audit of an entity’s financial statements (particularly a public interest entity). Going concern is also one of the other regular issues where the work of auditors is called into question (which was one of the main issues raised by the public when Thomas Cook ceased trading).
Regulators around the world are trying to reduce the expectations gap by bringing in more robust standards which auditors must work to. But will this solve the problem? What about directors of companies that fail due to accounting failures?
This one-hour webinar will examine how the expectations gap has widened over recent years and will examine how auditors currently work and what the effect of the new standards will be on companies and auditors.
