Course Overview

Even during the Covid-19 situation we’re facing, unfortunately compliance visits are still mandatory for both audit and non-audit firms.

Receiving notification of the monitoring visit can be a very stressful time for a firm with the fallout from Covid-19 only adding to this stress.

Firms need to pass to ensure they stay on the right side of regulation as failure to pass will attract unwanted attention from the Institute and potential regulation and disciplinary issues

Preparation is key and especially during this period of Covid-19, knowing what is involved will assist firms to prepare

During this online CPD course, we’ll guide you through the changed process and cover the following topics;

  • Topic 1:                An Overview of the ‘New’ Monitoring Process;
  • Topic 2:                The Whole Firm Review Process and top whole firm issues;
  • Topic 3:                Anti-Money Laundering Review and top issues;
  • Topic 4:                Top Audit File Issues;
  • Topic 5:                The Post Monitoring Process.
