Audits of Less Complex Entities – IAASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on December 9-13, 2019, the IAASB discussed the feedback received to date related to audits of less complex entities, including from the Discussion Paper and other related outreach. The key messages received from the feedback highlighted the strong support for the IAASB’s work in this area, as well as the need for a timely and global solution. The Board asked the LCE Working Group to continue to analyze the feedback from stakeholders to help determine the most appropriate way forward, and it was agreed that further information gathering activities would continue until June 2020, at which time it is anticipated that a decision about the way forward will be made.

As part of the proposal for work in this area, the IAASB had agreed that it was important to keep stakeholders informed of its progress in relation to its work on audits of LCEs. Accordingly, the Board agreed to publish a Feedback Statement in December 2019 detailing what the IAASB had heard from its consultation and related outreach.
