Auditing standards require auditors to assess risk-including controls-and use that assessment as a foundation for performing the audit. Risk assessment is not just a technical GAAS requirement, it has a direct impact on realization. Audit teams that perform a thorough risk assessment are more likely to have high realization engagements than those who go through the motions. This course is designed for small business audit teams. It addresses the risk assessment procedures and responsibilities for each team member and how they fit together to create more effective and efficient audits.
Each element of the risk assessment process. Understanding the client’s business and industry in which it operates. Internal control. Assessing the magnitude and likelihood of risk. Linking risk assessment to substantive audit procedures.

Identify characteristics of the client’s business and industry that are most relevant for assessing audit risk. Identify the client’s key controls and assess their ability to mitigate risk. Link the elements of the risk assessment model to an overall assessment of risk and the design of further audit procedures.
