Overview     

Recently there has been a noticeable global need for increased accountability of both financial and non-financial information. Accountants and auditors have a responsibility to enhance the degree of confidence of intended users of this information. 

As far as dependable information goes, SME clients may not need an audit, but may find Agreed-upon procedures (AUP) engagements a very useful and valuable non-audit service. ISRS 4400 (Revised), Agreed-upon Procedures Engagements, has been revised to respond to the growing demand for these engagements, particularly because a broad range of stakeholders, such as regulators, funding bodies and creditors, use Agreed-upon Procedures reports to address increased accountability. 

During this webinar we will highlight key changes and discuss some sample AUP engagements as we assist you to grow your practice by performing AUP engagements for your clients. Join our technical expert Lettie Janse van Vuuren CA(SA) on 29 June  2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as she unpacks the changes and focus areas of the Revised ISRS 4400 on Agreed-upon Procedures in an understandable format.
