When an audit is performed in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, a high level of assurance is provided that the financial statements are free of material misstatement caused by fraud or error. Fraud is pervasive, however, and it is critical that auditors familiarize themselves with current procedural, performance and documentation standards related to fraud—and be prepared to respond appropriately when fraud is uncovered. Receive an overview of the general concepts of risk assessment required by professional standards. In addition, get an in-depth review of the specific, fraud-related requirements, including changes resulting from the AICPA Audit Standards Board's Clarity Standards.

  • Determine and implement concepts embodied in the AICPA audit risk assessment model as it pertains to fraud.
  • Identify how the Clarity Standards have confirmed integration of fraud into the risk assessment requirements.
  • Recognize the concept of the fraud triangle.
  • Identify differences between the auditor's required response for material versus immaterial fraud risks.
  • Identify risks of material misstatement due to fraud and select appropriate or required further audit procedures.

Major Topics:
