A detailed guide to planning, carrying out and completing an audit, Efficient Auditing of Private Companies is now in its Sth edition and covers issues and problems a year on from the introduction of Clarified ISAs.

This edition features lessons learnt and recent changes including the Accounting Standards Board's new definition of related parties, new example working papers dealing with accounting estimates, as well as greater detail on analytical procedures such as setting expectations and an acceptable level of difference.

This new edition focuses on areas picked up in the Quality Assurance Department's reports, as well as SWAT UK's extensive client experience of common problems and pitfalls, including the top 20 problems identified at file review. The book will help with tailoring the audit approach to ensure the most efficient and cost effective audit possible.

The guidance is structured into three main areas:-

  • planning- a step by step guide through the ISA requirements and what they mean in practice;
  • carrying out the audit - tests to be carried out and how these translate from the ISAs; and
  • completion - a review of all the information pulled together to successfully complete the audit. Changes since the last edition of this title include:
  • updated for revised ethical standards;
  • expanded section on review of estimates;
  • expanded section on review of accounting policies;
  • changes to response to risk of management override;
  • more on analytical procedures including setting expectations and an acceptable level of difference;
  • updated approach to related parties for revised FRS 8;
  • updated chapter on audit reports for the revised ISA 700; and
  • guidance amended to refer to common problems SWAT have found on file reviews.
