Length: 3 h 30

New training for 2021-2022


Assurance and accounting standards are constantly evolving, changing the CPA’s responsibility for assurance files and financial statement reporting. These changes are frequent, happen fast and cannot be ignored by practitioners.

Objectives for the day:

  • To identify and understand the changes made to the standards
  • To understand practical applications of these new requirements in the documentation of assurance files
  • To determine the changes required in the financial statements and the impact of applying them in disclosures
