This session will discuss how the concept of materiality is applied by the auditor both in planning and performing the audit, and in evaluating the effect of identified misstatements on the audit and of uncorrected misstatements, if any, on the financial statements. 

  • The determination of materiality and performance materiality when planning and performing  an audit
  • Revision as the audit progresses
  • The concepts of misstatements, uncorrected misstatements and clearly trivial
  • The auditor’s responsibility in evaluating the effect of identified misstatements and uncorrected misstatements in the audit
