Audit Workpapers: Documenting Field Work (On-Demand)

Description

Working papers are the building blocks for an audit. If relevant details are not listed in the working papers, the manager and partner may not be aware of significant transactions or consider their ramifications. A poorly prepared working paper can cause inefficiencies for the preparer, reviewer and partner, so proper working paper preparation and documentation is critical. Learn the basics of working paper preparation—form and content—to make sure significant audit items are properly documented. This course addresses common misconceptions noted by peer reviewers.
