Course Overview

In this course we are going to look at the particular requirements for reporting on regulated entities.  Through our experience we have identified the key requirements and key areas of weakness when dealing with regulated entities, in this session we will cover:

  • PSRA reporting and key requirements
  • The Law Society Report and key requirements
  • Central Bank regulated entities and key reporting requirements including audit considerations

Regulated entities are of key focus in any monitoring visit and it is important that reporting requirements are met to ensure compliance.  It is important that firms have the competency to undertake work on regulated entities.

This course will help you in identifying the reporting requirements and the work needed to ensure you fulfil your duty to the relevant regulator as the reporting accountant or auditor as applicable.

Knowing the key areas of weakness and establishing the reporting requirements is of great benefit to all firms to ensure compliance matters are addressed.  This session will help you achieve that.
