In June 2017, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) issued its report 534 – Audit inspection program report for 2015-16. Based on the report, ASIC defines audit quality as follows (section 25): “For our regulatory purposes, audit quality refers to matters that contribute to the likelihood that the auditor will: (a) achieve the fundamental objective of obtaining reasonable assurance that the financial report as a whole is free of material misstatement; and (b) ensure material deficiencies detected are addressed or communicated through the audit report.” (ASIC 2017).

The report has also indicated the following (section 55):

“Some initiatives that appear to have improved audit quality: Initiatives undertaken by some firms that appear to have a positive impact on aspects of audit quality at those firms include:

(a) forming specialist focus groups and risk panels on impairment of nonfinancial assets, substantive analytical procedures and other areas to develop the necessary expertise, support and coaching for audit teams;

(b) increasing partner time spent on engagements;

(c) developing a strong culture focused on audit quality with accountability at all levels of partners and staff;

(d) proper project management of audits, including monitoring—at audit team and firm level—of progress against key engagement-specific milestones, and addressing issues early to minimise deadline pressures at the conclusion of the audit; and

(e) greater education of directors and management of audited entities to improve financial reporting quality and support the audit process.”

(ASIC, 2017).

Required:                                                                      

Based on your individual research, please support the above findings by ASIC and suggest any other initiatives that could positively contribute to improving audit quality.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
