Recent auditing standards and peer review feedback have emphasized the importance of performing an effective risk assessment when identifying and evaluating the risk of material misstatement in a financial statement audit. These risk assessment procedures include both evaluating the design and implementation of internal controls, as well as determining how much reliance an auditor will place on those controls. Further, the risk assessment process provides the rationale for effectively and efficiently designing the nature, timing, and extent of further audit procedures, be they testing the operating effectiveness of internal controls or the performance of substantive audit procedures. While this requirement of an effective audit hasn’t changed, the level of risk brought about due to emerging accounting and disclosure issues brought on by the pandemic coupled with the new ways we will be required to obtain the information to assess risk and internal control stressors on our clients, certainly has.
