Description

Proper documentation is essential to a high-quality audit, as auditors are required to prepare and maintain documentation to demonstrate that sufficient and appropriate audit evidence was obtained to support the auditor's opinion. It is critical for workpapers to provide a clear understanding of the nature, timing, and extent of procedures applied, the results of those procedures, source of evidence obtained, and conclusion reached. Both audit effectiveness and efficiency are directly impacted by the nature and extent of audit documentation.
