Our unique position means that we regularly meet HMRC, treasury, standard setters and regulators enabling us to bring you practical insights on the latest topical issues that ensures your practice not only remains compliant but also ahead of the competition.
This course will help auditors better deal with current challenges as well as prepare for the future.
Many audit firms find the same issues come up on cold file reviews year after year. Not effectively responding to cold file review feedback is one area our Quality Assurance team regularly report that audit firms struggle with. Perhaps a different approach is needed?
This roadshow will explore some of the more common audit failings in a new and original way. It will help auditors get a better understanding of the importance of getting it right. The roadshow will take an innovative approach using our new film False Assurance* to bring to life the latest faculty insights on topical audit quality issues.
The lessons from this are applicable to audits of all sizes, including smaller audits.
The roadshow will take a fresh look at a number of these issues, including:
The roadshow will also highlight all the latest news on contemporary developments in ISAs, ethics and legislation relevant to auditors.
*False Assurance is an exciting film drama created to provoke discussions on how accountants, auditors and company directors should act when faced with difficult situations. For more information visit icaew.com/falseassurance
“I cannot remember the last time I felt so uncomfortable watching a film ... because it is so real to life.”
“The best auditor training session I have ever attended.”
“The film and subsequent discussions are a very effective way of getting people to think about what happens when things go wrong with a client or on an audit.”
Following on from the fundamental changes to UK GAAP in 2016 the focus in 2017 will be to look at providing practical solutions to a range of FRS 102 implementation issues that have emerged.
With new guidance on distributable profits on the horizon and the FRC’s first triennial review of FRS 102 just around the corner, there will be plenty of new changes to think about. Detailed case studies and numerical examples will be included when appropriate. Key topics to be covered include:
Presented by Rebecca Benneyworth the 2017 tax CPD programme will cover different topics in each half of the year.
Drawing on insights gained by the Tax Faculty in its consultations with government, HMRC and practitioners the seminars will not only be a technical update but importantly also a practical look at what firms need to do to prepare for the changes – in terms of services offered and information to clients. Key topics to be covered include:

This course will give you the confidence that you have taken all reasonable practical steps to protect your practice so that you can survive and thrive into the future.

Case studies and examples in hot audit areas
Auditing is changing again and a number of the changes are complex with limited guidance from standard setters. Some of these changes are hard to understand others are simply confusing, and are the subject of debate in the profession. Applying ICAEW’s technical resources, this roadshow will shine a light on difficult areas.
Using new case studies and examples, many of them based on real situations, this roadshow will give practical help to auditors on the following topics:
The roadshow will particularly focus on the audit of smaller, unlisted groups and companies.
By now most entities will have applied FRS 102 at least once. Some will have applied it a couple of times already and will be gearing up for their third year of applying the new standard. For many what we still tend to refer to as ‘new’ UK GAAP is fast becoming business as usual. With the transition phase now behind us, it’s time to assess how the standard is being applied practice.
The Financial Reporting Faculty has got feedback from QAD, the ICAEW Technical Advisory Service, Companies House and HMRC. The judges have now spoken. And the verdict is that there is definitely room for improvement!
This roadshow will give feedback on the areas where FRS 102 is proving to be challenging. Using practical examples, delegates will be shown how to better comply with what can sometimes be a difficult accounting standard.Key topics to be covered include:
The roadshow will also take a more detailed look at proposed changes to FRS 102 proposed by FRED 67 and the FRC’s plans for incorporating major new IFRSs into UK GAAP.
