This event is aimed at society as a whole as its primary objective is to correct the societal weaknesses within corporate reporting and assurance.
Anyone with an interest in citizenship, society and the betterment of South Africa will find value in this event as it is about rebuilding trust and reputation in the profession.
While there is an understanding that audit profession needs to change in order to address trust restoration and reputational issues, SAICA’s view is that the overall finance eco-system and capital markets’ stability are called into question by the current situation and needs to be reformed. SAICA strongly believes that the answers to the trust restoration and relevance questions lies in the profession embracing the concept of joint accountability for the stability and trustworthiness of the finance eco-system. In this event, we will bring together a panel composing of various role players in the financial reporting ecosystem to discuss steps that the profession as a whole can take in order to improve reporting and audit quality.
The role of combined assurance and placing accountability on the wider corporate reporting ecosystem.
Lessons that can be learned on governance from the recent corporate failures.
The relevance of the audit product in the modern-day business environment.
The impact of audit fees on audit quality.
