  • Governance in focus – Audit Committee effectiveness – 2021 framework

    published 03 Sep 2021

    The work of the audit committee has never been more important: investors, other stakeholders and regulators demand ever more informative and reliable reporting, not just of the results and financial position, but of strategy, resilience, long term value creation, of values, of a company’s role in climate change, not to mention the community and the whole public interest agenda. To assist with the annual Code requirement to review the effectiveness of your audit committee, committee members will want to keep current with the range of new calls on their time and attention. Given how much the landscape has already changed for audit committees, we decided to update this effectiveness framework for current expectations, even though more changes will emanate from the 2021 consultations on corporate reporting and audit reform.

  • Governance in focus – Effectiveness of the external audit process – 2021 framework

    published 03 Sep 2021

    The importance of the audit committee’s focus on audit appointment, audit quality and the effectiveness of the external audit process continues to increase. Indeed, it is more important than ever that the audit committee should be able to make their assessment of audit quality with confidence, as it is a key part of the audit committee’s role to scrutinise the quality of the external audit on behalf of shareholders. This concise set of just twenty-five questions for audit committees and ten questions for material component management to consider has been updated to reflect the fast-moving world of audit and reporting.

    We generally agree with the Board’s preliminary views as expressed in the discussion paper. In particular, we agree that different methods should be applied depending on the characteristics of the receiving entity. We agree that when the receiving entity does not have non-controlling shareholders, use of a book-value method is justified by cost-benefit considerations. However, we do not agree that the receiving entity should be required to use the transferred entity’s book values. We also agree that the acquisition method is likely to provide more relevant information to investors that must rely on general purpose financial statements of the receiving entity to obtain the information they require. Accordingly, we believe that the application of the acquisition method should be required more broadly than what is proposed in the discussion paper.

    published 31 Aug 2021

    We acknowledge that the use of an official exchange rate may not produce meaningful results when this rate is not available to the entity. However, we do not believe that attempting to estimate the exchange rate that would have been available if the currency had been exchangeable would produce meaningful results either. Accordingly, we believe that the Board should seek a solution that gives precedence to comparability.
