Course outline

Board members and collectively the Board of Directors are ultimately responsible for the financial statements of an entity. A financial statement audit can be disaggregated in several stages and the main objective of this course is to highlight those areas and the audit process where interactions between the Board and the auditor are required or considered as best practice to ensure an ISA compliant and efficient audit cycle. Understanding the role of the auditor and its responsibilities will further contribute to a sound understanding of the responsibility of the Board when it comes to the annual audit. Therefore, the course covers in detail the areas where interactions are required but as well leaves sufficient room for the exchange of opinions and the sharing of examples that will let Directors reflect on their past experience and further prepares Directors to continue in their role as Board members.
