Auditing Accounting Estimates - IAASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on December 11-15, 2017, the IAASB discussed key issues raised by respondents in relation to the Exposure Draft of ISA 540 (Revised), Auditing Accounting Estimates and Related Disclosures, including the scalability of the ISA, the use of the term “reasonable,” the exercise of professional skepticism and the Task Force’s approach to the application material. The IAASB also discussed the Task Force’s revisions to requirements and application material based on comments received on the Exposure Draft. The IAASB asked the Task Force to focus on redrafting the application material according to the planned approach with a view to conducting a first read of ISA 540 (Revised) in March 2018, ahead of a targeted approval in June 2018.
