On November 16, 2020, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) extended the closing date of the IAASB’s Discussion Paper, "Fraud and Going Concern in an Audit of Financial Statements: Exploring the Differences Between Public Perceptions About the Role of the Auditor and the Auditor’s Responsibilities in a Financial Statement Audit" to February 1, 2021.

The Discussion Paper aims to gather perspectives from all our stakeholders across the financial reporting ecosystem about the role of the auditor in relation to fraud and going concern in an audit of financial statements, and to obtain input on matters about whether our standards related to fraud and going concern remain fit-for-purpose in the current environment. The input from this consultation, together with other information gathering and outreach activities, will inform IAASB decisions about possible further actions on these topics.
