Audit CPD – Auditing Accounting Estimates and Applying Professional Scepticism

Date Added | October 7, 2020

Accounting estimates, including fair value measurements, are becoming more common in financial statements. They may be assessed as a high level of risk due to their nature, lack of observable evidence and potential for management bias.

This leads to an auditor applying a level of professional scepticism, which is fundamental to auditing such areas.

Key Topics

  • Common accounting estimates and the potential risks associated with them, for example managements involvement
  • Assessment of evidence available for audit testing
  • Challenging evidence and documenting your work
  • An understanding of professional scepticism and the challenges involved
  • References to relevant ISAs, including ISA 540, 240, ISA 200, ISA 220
