ICAP Seminar on New

Auditor Reporting Model

Karachi (PR): The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan (ICAP) organised an interactive seminar, ‘New Auditor Reporting Model – A Fundamental Shift’ at ICAP House Karachi for listed companies’ representatives. To enhance the value of the auditor’s report for stakeholders and users, International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) issued a revised set of international standards on auditing relating to audit report. This has brought some profound changes in the auditor’s report. The key features of the revision in the auditor’s report include the introduction of key audit matters, going concern assessment and reporting on other information forming part of the annual report.

The revised set of standards is applicable for the audit reports on the financial statements for the period ending on or after December 15, 2016.

The introduction of Key Audit Matters for listed entities is a significant enhancement that will change not only the auditor's report, but more broadly the quality of financial reporting - and, therefore, the informative value to investors and other key stakeholders.
