Audits of Less Complex Entities – IAASB

Date recorded:

At its meeting on June 15-19, 2020, the IAASB discussed the LCE Working Group’s recommendations for developing a separate standard for Audits of Less Complex Entities (LCEs) on the basis of overarching principles outlining how the separate standard could be developed. In its discussion, the Board highlighted the importance of the description of an LCE to help in developing the content of the separate standard. The Board also encouraged a more prescriptive definition for the application of the standard, although the Board recognized there would always be a level of judgment in making this determination. On this basis, the Board supported that the LCE Working Group commence development of the separate standard as well as prepare a related project proposal for approval at the December 2020 IAASB meeting.
