Who audits the auditors?

Sweeping reforms to the audit profession have been proposed by a government-backed review as a way to restore confidence in the sector. What do you need to know and how will the upcoming changes affect the charity sector?  How do you choose the right auditor and keep them accountable? This session will provide further insight into what you can expect from upcoming auditing changes.

Preparing for your next financial audit

To prepare effectively for an audit, finance teams need to understand what level of information auditors require in order to conclude that the accounts are true and fair. This will include focusing on the recent updates to the auditing standards, ongoing concern and accounting estimates. How can you get your organisation ready for the auditing process? Join this session to find out how you can ensure that your auditing process runs smoothly.
