2 Presentation Objectives Discuss background and reasons for enacting selected new Statements on Auditing Standards (SAS s). Review specific per-sas requirements. Convey the impacts of the new requirements on localities.
3 Risk Assessment Standards (SAS ) - Overview The AICPA s Auditing Standards Board has issued eight Statements on Auditing Standards (SAS) relating to the assessment of risk in an audit of financial statements: SAS No. 104, Amendment to Statement on Auditing Standards No. 1,Codification of Auditing Standards and Procedures ( Due Professional Care in the Performance of Work ) SAS No. 105, Amendment to Statement on Auditing Standards No. 95, Generally Accepted Auditing Standards SAS No. 106, Audit Evidence SAS No. 107, Audit Risk and Materiality in Conducting an Audit SAS No. 108, Planning and Supervision SAS No. 109, Understanding the Entity and Its Environment and Assessing the Risks of Material Misstatement SAS No. 110, Performing Audit Procedures in Response to Assessed Risks and Evaluating the Audit Evidence Obtained SAS No. 111, Amendment to Statement on Auditing Standards No. 39, Audit Sampling
4 Why? The Accounting Standards Board (ASB) believes these standards are significantly more strengthened and will lead to a more quality audit product.
5 Objectives Objective is to improve the audit s effectiveness by providing: A more detailed entity-wide understanding of processes and controls A more rigorous assessment of the risks of material misstatement (either by fraud or error) in the financial statement A linkage between assessed risks and the nature, timing, i and extent t of the audit procedures performed in response to those risks.
6 Audit Benefits Enhances the use of the audit risk model in practice by requiring: A more detailed understanding of the entity, its processes, and controls Ability to default to maximum control risk is removed Improved linkage between entity risk and the resulting audit procedures performed.
7 Risk Assessment Standards Enhances the auditor s application of the audit risk model: AR = [CR x IR] x DR [CR x IR] = RMM AR = Audit Risk CR = Control Risk IR = Inherent Risk DR =Detection Risk RMM = risk of material misstatement Source: AICPA Risk Assessment Standards Presentation
8 Risk Assessment Standards Retain the use of the Internal Control Framework:
9 Risk Assessment Standards Auditors must: Assess internal control for strength and functionality Assess whether or not these controls were in use Assess the risk of material misstatement at both the financial statement level and at the assertion level.
10 Risk Assessment Standards New Assertion Framework Classes of Transactions Account Balances Presentation and Disclosures Occurrence Existence Occurrence and Rights / obligations Completeness Rights and Completeness obligations Accuracy Completeness Classification and understandability Cutoff Classification Valuation and allocation Accuracy and valuation
11 Risk Assessment Standards Audit Risk Auditor s Response Financial Statement Overall responses Account level Further Audit Procedures (Tests of fcontrols and dsubstantive ti Tests) Testing of controls is encouraged.

29 Risk Assessment Standards SAS 110 SAS 110, Performing Procedures The auditor must obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence through audit procedures performed to afford a reasonable basis for an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole.
30 Risk Assessment Standards SAS 110 SAS No. 110 provides guidance on: Determining overall responses Designing and performing further audit procedures Overall responses may include: Exercising professional skepticism Assigning more experienced personnel Changing the timing i and extent t of audit procedures Using specialists Leads to the design of additional procedures as necessary and deemed adequate (considering the timing, nature and extent of procedures)
