Lawyers who advise companies and not-for-profits will be aware of annual reports, financial statements, and the role of audit committees, but the dynamics of the audit process will be less familiar to many.This webinar will give a practical understanding of the audit and assurance environment, its interface with legislation and corporate governance practice, and how auditors do their work. It will also cover a number of important international and local developments in the area of financial reporting and accountability, including the emergence of new forms of extended or integrated reporting, and their impact of on governance in both the for-profit and NFP sectors.
So, why is this important to you?Lawyers involved with the drafting of audit provisions in constitutions, deeds, and incorporated society rules need to understand the implications of recent legislative changes for precedents and drafting practice. More broadly, in-house and external lawyers need to be aware of the changing accountability and assurance landscape and its implications for governance and accountability.
