To help SMPs improve their audit quality, ISCA carried out the Quality Assurance Review programme. The programme helps to identify areas of improvement in audit procedures and documentation.
With the increasing emphasis on audit quality globally, the Institute released a publication “Enhancing Audit Quality – From Different Perspective”, which gathered the viewpoints of key stakeholders (practitioners, directors, regulators, preparers) in Singapore on the audit quality framework issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board and its application in practice.
Through ISCA’s Technical Clinic, public accountants were also given a platform to share and discuss auditing related issues among themselves with the aim of improving the quality of audit.
The Institute is committed to playing a leading role in guiding the accountancy profession to contribute to the well being of Singapore and also support the global movement on anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism.
